Calling all those who incorporate a ruthless hairbrush dance into their morning routine - this one’s for you! Dance UL has been working diligently to provide each and every one of you the opportunity to explore a different genre of dance each week of the semester, with our highly anticipated Workshops every Wednesday.
We kicked off the semester in week 3 with international choreographer Riman Rafi, hailing all the way from Toronto, Canada and pushing the limits of dynamic expression with his uniquely challenging and incredibly fun Hip Hop choreography. If you were unable to participate in his workshop, fear not, for we have many more on the way!
In week 5 our very own Dance UL committee member and choreographer Jocelyn Ip is teaching her renowned Heels workshop! She is the embodiment of a fierce, strong and spirited dancer whose style will unleash your inner sass. Join us on February 22nd at 7:00 pm in EGO-10 (the Main Building) for a two hour session packed with powerful technique and some of that unrivalled attitude. Week 6 will feature another one of our talented committee members, Ana Camillo, whose stunning Gypsy Dance choreography is known to steal the hearts of all who witness her vivacious performances. Ana’s workshop is another that you will not want to miss, and will be held in the same location (EGO-10) on Wednesday, March 1st. No dance experience is necessary!
Workshops will continue to run every Wednesday of the semester, so don’t miss your chance to join in! Dancers must be registered with Dance UL in order to participate. For those of you who are craving more Hip Hop, Dance UL Intervarsity choreographer Jessica Keyes will be leading a highly anticipated workshop on Wednesday, March 29th! Jessica has co-choreographed and performed in award-winning Hip Hop pieces, and has returned to the stage as Head Choreographer, representing UL at this year’s All Ireland Intervarsity Dance Competition in March. Her workshop will provide Dance UL members with the opportunity to learn exciting new choreography from an extremely seasoned and passionate dancer, so whip out those calendars and mark the date!
Additional to Dance UL’s classes and workshops, we engage in events with other clubs and societies and would love for you to join us in upcoming table quizzes, dance nights, and of course, the End of Semester Showcase, featuring all of our dancers onstage at the Johnathan Swift Theatre. Stay tuned for further developments in the dance world in and around campus by following Dance UL on Facebook, Instagram (officialdanceul) and Snapchat (DanceUL). As always, the committee and teachers are greatly looking forward to seeing both fresh and familiar faces throughout the semester.
