We are delighted to announce that dance artist Monica Muñoz will begin her Early Years Artist Residency this week, presenting her Underwater Moves online workshops for children aged 2-4 and their grown-ups as part of the Dublin City Libraries Creative Hubs programme.
Last February, we announced that dance artist Monica Muñoz would become our third John Coolahan Early Years Artist-in-Residence. Delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are delighted that she will finally begin her residency this week with fun workshops for children aged 2-4 and their grown-ups as part of the Dublin City Libraries Creative Hubs programme and our new partnership with Dublin City Arts Office and Libraries, bringing experiences on and off line to young audiences aged 2-4 and their families!
Monica brings a sunny seaside beach and all its excitement right into your homes! You can surf, dance in the sea and swim like a fish in this fun filled workshop with a sound track to the summer you won’t forget anytime soon!
Catch a wave with Monica and you will be sitting on top of the world after her workshop!
