The Little Mermaid
25th-29th July 2016
Alexandra Park was a ‘hive’ of activity this Easter thanks to a unique cross-community festival themed around the life of bees.
Led by schools and community groups from across North Belfast, children from schools such as St Patrick’s and Seaview PS have been created working with the local artists to design and construct giant bees, gigantic flowers, bee costumes and bee houses.
New Lodge Arts junior dancers have recently been presented with awards accredited by UKA Dance (a recognised awarding body across UK & Ireland). We organised evenings where parents and families were invited along to watch their children perform & receive their certificates & medals. A total of 35 young people aged 3-9 years old have completed their dance exams in Hip Hop & Ballet, before Christmas last year. The young people worked hard in their weekly classes and rehearsals for these exams.
