DANCE Limerick are gearing up to host a new season of dance classes this month.

The dance resource organisation, based in St John’s Church - the old Daghdha building - will host new season of dance classes, beginning next week.

There will be contemporary dance, ballet, creative movement and dance clubs for kids and as such “opportunities for all ages and levels to get moving this spring,” according to Jenny Traynor, director of Dance Limerick.

“As a resource organisation for dance in Limerick, we aim to provide opportunities for dance to be created and experienced by all ages and by professional and non-professional dancers alike,” she explained.

“We’re very excited about our new season and hope to get everyone moving for the new year,” she added.

Meanwhile, this Saturday, artist Simon Thompson will present a body and movement workshop in the space at Dance Limerick from 11am-4pm, with the fee a January special ‘pay what you can’.

An investigation into the moving body, this workshop will be based on the work of Jacques Lecoq, the French artist best known for his work in physical theatre and mime.

It will be physical and will suit those with a knowledge of performance, an interest in physical theatre and/or those who work with gesture as a narrative form.

Places are limited to 12, so booking is essential.
