Local Dance Groups

We work with local dance groups throughout the year and for our festival. These include Fireworks DDTA, a company that teaches classes in a range of dance styles, including tap, jazz, ballet and Lindy Hop. Under the leadership of director Nadine Hegarty, Fireworks have performed a range of dances at the festival over the past few years.

Create Dance Group, run by Carie Houston, a dance group based in Studio2 in Shantallow. Carie works with this group, and with her dance students at the North West Regional College, to prepare dance pieces for the festival.
