Have-a-go dance course for children at the Göteborg Opera
Within the Göteborg Opera's Unga initiative there is scope for lots of activities for children and teenagers. At the weekend, dancers from the Göteborg Opera Ballet are holding a free have-a-go dance course for children aged 8-9.
The course is being held in the Göteborg Opera's large ballet hall, lasting two days and ending with a display for friends and family. Dancers Monica Milocco, Annika Lindquist and Susanna Caldegren are leading the course, which was quickly booked up.
The children taking part will be able to familiarise themselves with different styles of dance – including ballet, modern dance, street, improvisation, rhythmic movement and jazz – and will learn some simple choreography.
This have-a-go course is being held on Saturday 13 August from 1 to 3 pm and on Sunday 14 August from 1 to 3 pm. The concluding display is on the Sunday from 3.00 – 3.15 pm. Please feel welcome to follow the dance course and view the concluding display! Further reading is available at www.opera.se/unga. NB!
