Digmoor Community Centre is looking for dancers to perform at their International Women’s Day celebration

Posted on: 30 January 2011

Digmoor Community Centre will be hosting a special event to commemorate International Women’s Day.

The occasion, on March 8, will feature a variety of performances from local dancing and singing groups.

The centre is also setting up street dance classes to prepare wannabe performers for the big day.

A number of services are teaming up to offer the lessons, which will be part of a 10-week course.

These include Skelmersdale Action for Youth (SAY), Digmoor Community Centre, Attitude Dancing School and the Young People’s Service.

The classes are for females aged between 11 and 18 and are at Digmoor Community Centre, Birleywood Skelmersdale.

A series of other dance workshops will be taking place between 6.30pm and 7.30pm on Friday nights.

These will be for approximately 25- 30 young people from around Skelmersdale and West Lancashire to learn how to dance and to prepare them for the Women’s Day event.

A number of other activities also take place at the celebration, including a performance by Skelmersdale Community Choir.

Event organisers are keen to attract more performance groups to the event.

Any young women’s groups who would like to take part on the night are most welcome.

Other projects run by SAY include a skate boarding project at Birchgreen , Bankburn and Windrows skate parks during the February half-term break.

SAY have expressed their gratitude to Vicky Hunter from Attitude Dance School, and Cllr Mark Peaks from Lancashire County Council who secured funding for the Street Dance sessions and the event for International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day has been celebrated since the early 1900s.

Events across the world mark the occasion, which first took place in Germany in 1911.

Anybody interested in the lessons or getting involved in International Women’s Day can contact Alan Lewis on 07939660048 for more information.
