Let's Dance for Barefeet

Barefeet Ireland are organising a dance competition in the style of Strictly Come Dancing in The Magherabuoy House Hotel in Portrush to raise funds for Barefeet Zambia on Saturday 14th May.  

Brian Moore will be our Host and DJ for the evening and other local celebrities will be the judges. Lots of local people are taking part and there will be a special opening dance by Barefeet themselves via video link.  

The tickets which are £15 including supper can be bought in Inspirations in Portstewart or at the door. Come along and cheer your favourite act and place your vote for the winner. I'll be playing the role of Tess Daly for the evening so it'll be worth going just to see me embarrass myself.

An evening of unbeatable entertainment is guaranteed.  Doors open 7pm. 

For further details about the event contact Tricia McGuigan 07950750871

Barefeet is a creative arts and performance project founded by local man Adam McGuigan from Ballymoney. The project has been helping children on the streets of Zambia for 5 years. The project uses theatre, art, dance, music and creative writing as a tool to engage with children most at risk of disengaging from their communities. Barefeet offers them an opportunity to have their voices heard and a channel through which to express themselves. It works. Its not rocket science, by giving children some encouragement, confidence, self belief and allowing them to ’shine’, you can really start to work together to find brighter opportunities. We are asking you to help by attending this event in aid of the charity.
