Event Description

This inspiring performance by Vintage Youth, Dance Theatre of Ireland’s 18-member Seniors Dance Ensemble, embodies Active Age awareness and challenges in a positive way, the limited perception of older persons. Created through written text and movement drawn from the participants' experience - it expresses memories and reflections on life and aging and shares stories common to us all: loss, mobility, family, illness.

It explores the changes, challenges and rewards of aging and the discoveries of delving into the creative well in the “Third age”.  Choreographed by DTI Artistic Directors Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick in collaboration with the Company. 

Vintage Youth is a Seniors Dance Ensemble formed by participants in Dance Theatre of Ireland’s Well-Dance for Seniors classes who wanted to share the joy and importance of re-discovering dancing.

Supported by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, The Arts Council and The Ireland Funds.
