Dance Kids’ celebrate ‘December Delights’ success

dance-kids-seniors-taking-part-in-december-delights

Freda Hearty and the Dance Kids have once again exceeded expectations and delighted audiences with their Christmas show ‘December Delights’. The talented Dance Kids aged from just four years danced and sang their hearts out last weekend when ‘December Delights’ took to An Tàin Arts Centre stage and brought the house down; with delighted audiences declaring it “the best show yet”.

With two sold out shows, the audience enjoyed an excerpt from the hugely popular ‘Wizard of Oz’ as well as many favourites such as Alice in Wonderland, Motown and Chicago.

After months of hard work and two show-stopping performances from the Dance Kids an exhausted but delighted Freda Hearty said “I am absolutely thrilled with how well the shows turned out, all the kids and the Dance Kids crew worked so hard. Thank you to all the parents and everyone who helped out. I can’t wait for out summer show in June already.”

Preparations are now underway for the Dance Kids annual summer show, which will take place in June. Dance Kids classes take place in Scoil Eoin Baiste on Saturdays from 11:00-12:00 for 4-7/8years, 12:00–1:00 for 8/9-11/12 years, 1:00-2:00 for 12 years +. New members are always welcome and can register by calling Freda on 042 9339797.

Dance Kids classes are an excellent way for kids to learn many talents in the field of dance, drama and song. They create an excellent opportunity for children to grow in confidence, perform on stage, become active, make friends and most importantly have fun!

Dundalk: 26th out of 40 towns / cities surveyed. Clean to European Norms

There were no heavily littered areas in Dundalk. Some of the very good sites surveyed included Dundalk Grammar School, Clanbrassil Street and Dundalk Train Station, with the latter registering a noted improvement over a previous survey. The V & W Recycle Facility was nicely adorned with planting and was impeccable throughout.  Dundalk Institute of Technology was let down by the very heavy levels of cigarette butts – it is quite unusual to see a Green Flag Campus environment so heavily plagued by cigarette butts. 

 

Dundalk Grammar School:  Grade A.  This was an excellent site – not only was it clear of litter but
