Belfast Boys


The Intergenerational Dance Project has taken place weekly on a Tuesday in the Ramoan Community Centre, 3 Station Street, Ballycastle.

This project brings together young people aged 15-18 years with elders 65+ living in the Ballycastle area. At a time when there are few situations that bring people of different generations together, the project seeks to address this lack of connection, advocating the power of dance as a vehicle for personal, social and community cohesion.

For young people, the experience of being involved in this unique project supports personal development and many youth leadership programmes.

The workshops are free and the group are enjoying working, talking and creating together, devising performances and events that will resonate with people of different ages.

Workshops will start again on Tuesday 19th September. Go along and give it a go!
