Dance Limerick Presents an Over 50s dance project



Dance Limerick are proud to host ‘Here’s Looking at You Kid’ an Over 50s dance project, on Sunday, May 15, at 3 pm.

The project entitled “Here’s Looking at You Kid” pulls inspiration from classic movie scenes. The project will see a group of Limerick’s mature residents transforming into various movie icons, such as Tony Curtis or The Pink Panther.  

The Over 50s dance project began in April, with participants from Limerick city and county meeting twice weekly, to practise new dance moves, bringing to life some of the old time magic and movements. Choreographer, Philippa Donnellan is more than impressed with the level of skill and enthusiasm displayed by all involved.

“We have a great bunch of movers! Some of the group have done lots of dancing before, from rock n roll, to ballroom, but others are complete newcomers and have picked it up really quickly.  We’ve had fantastic fun since coming together, so I can’t wait to see the response of the audience on May 15,” Philippa said.
