We welcomed organiser Máira and dancer Daria talking about the festival happening on the 17th of September in Hylands Park between 10 am – 10 pm. This will be an amazing event for the whole family. Dance workshops, battles, cinematography room, food and drinks, casting agency room, fashion shows and pop up shops. Workshops led by internationally recognised teachers in a wide range of genre, including Hiphop, Bollywood, House, Ballet, tap, Latin, jazz, popping, whacking, Irish etc. Moira told us how an idea a year ago had grown into a huge event, with some people flying in from San Francisco to watch the dancing. Daria had only been dancing for a year. She had flown to Paris for special lessons and enjoyed seeing the Eifel Tower. She is featured in the YouTube video about the event. More information, including how to take part on the website www.thehyvefestival.co.uk. You can e-mail for details firstname.lastname@example.org.
