YOUNG PEOPLE DANCE FOR LIFE!

Press Eye - Belfast - Northern Ireland - 25th March 2017 Young People Dance For Life! Over 200 young people took part in Youth Action Northern IrelandÕs Dance4Life community festival in Belfast on Saturday 25 March. Dance4Life, funded by Active Belfast and supported by Belfast City Council, was established by Youth Action NI to engage inactive young people across the City of Belfast, no matter their background or ability, by improving access to dance programmes in the community and unusual spaces. The project aims to increase the skills and knowledge of young people by providing a catalogue of dance workshops and nutrition sessions to educate them on the benefits of being active and making healthier lifestyle choices. It culminated on Saturday 25 March when community groups across Northern Ireland took part in a celebratory festival and performed city-wide flash mobs for unsuspecting passersby.
