Its day one of Stagefire Dance project 2009
and there are over 70 dancers working hard in Cracow to get a show together in less than ten days! We have three performances planned for the end of the camp. The first is the main one which will take place in a cinema theatre seating about 800 people. We will be performing here to the live music of Carrantouhill
. The next day we will have another performance at the venue where the rehearsals will be taking place all week. Then some of the dancers will be chosen to travel to Northern Poland (12hr bus ride!!) to perform at the Polish Woodstock festival which is the largest music festival in Europe with an expected audience of 400,000 people!!!
Choreographers: David Bellwood
, Shane McAvinchey
