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.
Carie and Nadine are working together with their pupils during this time of isolation to put together a piece that will be shown on our online and social media platforms. We can’t wait to see what they produce!
