Opportunity Summary:

The Luminous Soul Dance Project is a group of disabled dancers who meet weekly to develop their skills and creativity in contemporary dance. The group have made a name for themselves through their performances at festivals and showcases in Northern Ireland and London. The Luminous Soul team has worked with many expert choreographers and tutors from around the UK and Northern Ireland. These include the award-winning Candoco Dance Company, Blue Eyed Soul Dance Company, and the world class performers and choreographers, Claire Cunningham, Caroline Bowditch and Marc Brew. The project has been a huge success and some of our Luminous Soul dancers have given performances as professional disabled dancers - a first for Northern Ireland! Please contact the organisation for details of how to join the weekly classes.
