This summer Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company launch their Digital Programme supported by the ACNI Stability and Renewal Fund. This series of online bite-sized courses have been designed to encourage the exploration of creativity in movement in the comfort of your own home.

The courses are aimed at different age groups and are all led by the highly experienced artist-teachers of the Echo Echo Ensemble. Each course consists of 8 easy to follow videos of roughly 15-20 minutes long which include a variety of playful warm ups and exercises, some technical instruction and much guidance for the development of improvised and choreographed solo movement.

Echo Echo Ensemble Artist Ayesha Mailey says:

“The focus of our Digital Programme is to stimulate individual creativity and imagination in movement and dance whatever your age or previous experience. At Echo Echo we believe that everyone can be poetic in their movement and we hope that our Digital Programme offers an opportunity for the whole family to get involved.”

Noirin McKinney, Director of Arts Development, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, commented:

“The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is delighted to support Echo Echo’s new Digital Programme through our Stability and Renewal Programme for Organisations, funded by the Department for Communities. This vital emergency funding scheme was designed to help organisations respond to the impacts of the Covid-19 crisis, including helping them to continue producing creative work and plan for recovery in the long-term. This funding has enabled Echo Echo to adapt and develop a high quality online programme which helps to bring great art to people in the comfort of their homes whilst we await a time when it’s safe to return to in-person workshops and performances. Well done to all involved.”
