Junior Arts Academy
‘Cats New Lodge Style’
3rd-7th August 2015
New Lodge Arts Junior Summer Arts Academy took place from Monday 3rd August – Friday 7th August 2015 with 22 young people participating in the programme. Led by Brona Jackson and Sarah Davies, the young people devised their own piece of theatre based on Cats the Musical. The programme provided dance, drama and singing workshops for young people from the Greater New Lodge and surrounding areas aged 6-11yrs.
The young people had a fantastic week – all getting into their characters of either the House Cats and the Alley Cats. They devised their own songs and choreographed some dance moves to create a highly entertaining showcase for parents and friends which took place on Friday 7th August in the North Queen Street Community Centre.
Brona Jackson, Dance Tutor said ‘This was a great week for the young people – they loved the cats theme and inventing their dance routines – Sarah and I had a ball!’
