ACTIVITIES | 2Faced Dance Company announce new weekly classes

2Faced Dance Company are back with a new programme of dance classes for ages 4 and over.

Taking place at the company’s new Centre for Movement (based within the old Magistrate’s Court on Gaol Street), classes will be taught by professional dance artists and will include an open ballet class, Monday Movers for ages 4-6 and a 2Faced Fusion class for ages 7-10 on Tuesdays. 

The company are also seeking passionate and gifted young dancers over the age of 10 to audition for their prestigious Youth Company – 2Faced Youth.

2Faced Dance’s Marketing Manager, Lisa Sullivan, has said about the programme; “It feels great to be opening the studio doors after nearly 6 months of not being able to teach, rehearse and train in this beautiful space. Obviously, there are restrictions on the numbers of participants we can have in the classes but we are determined to make this term as fun and energetic as possible. 

The safety of the participants and staff is our number one priority and we have put all the necessary measures in place to ensure our classes can run securely. We are very excited to be welcoming a new teacher to our class programme – Ciara Clayton will be teaching an Open Ballet class for ages 10 and over – no previous experience required and no exams, just a fun and friendly atmosphere in which to learn a new skill.”

Whilst entry to the majority of classes is available to all, 2Faced Youth remains via audition only. Offering gifted and talented young dancers three hours of training per week with the company’s professional dance artists, 2FY has seen previous students go on to train at dance schools such as The Place, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and the National School for Circus Arts.

Auditions for 2FY 2020/21 will be held on Tuesday 8 September with applicants encourage to apply to audition before Monday 7 September
