“I had forgotten how much fun it was to just dance until I joined in the Tuesday night classes” (Class Participant)
This class aims to introduce contemporary dance with an emphasis on building strength, alignment and flexibility. Participants will learn a mixture of methods and dance techniques in order to experience a wider range of exercises that improve posture and encourage expression.
Tuesdays from 19 January 2016 | 6pm-7.15pm |
Dance Limerick Studio
Fee: €12 per class
