Dance Party - Bodies That Can Never Tire (Dublin2020 / International Literature Festival Dublin / Dublin Dance Festival)

Bodies That Can Never Tire: The Whole City Must Dance – the Whole City Must Bid! is an all-day dance marathon taking place on Henry Street, one of Dublin’s major shopping streets. The first of two events in honour of W.B. Yeats’ 150th birthday – and inspired by his famous lines, ‘That he follow with desire/Bodies that can never tire’

Part of Dublin’s bid to be European Capital of Culture 2020, this event extends an invitation to Dublin’s dancers to mix contemporary, hip-hop, ballet, tap, jazz (and everything in between) in an exuberant celebration of movement, creativity and dance. All dance groups, amateur or professional, in any form, are welcome. Groups wishing to participate should contact dance@Dublin2020.ie. For more details and how to take part CLICK HERE

All donations and fundraising proceeds go to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
