The Snakes

The Snakes continue rehearse 4-6 every Monday at Holy Trinity School in Westport new members are welcome. Upcoming events include a new performance piece with Danceworld in Ballina as part of a show at the new Ballina Art center at the end of May. The piece is called Supernova and will combine the drumming skills and the dance skills of both groups. Rehearsals are ongoing and it promises to be a very exciting and unique performance.

The Snakes have been asked back to perform at the Westport Arts Festival for the fourth year running and are looking forward to it. The group is currently working hard on their new show, which will be ready for a performance sometime during the summer.

Danceworld is the west coast’s largest and most successful dance and performance Academy. Comprising over 250 dancers, with classes in Ballina, Castlebar and Westport. Having performed to sell-out audiences in their hometown in previous years, Danceworld transformed the TF Royal Theatre in Castlebar in 2007 and 2009 with colourful, vibrant spectacular shows. Danceworld also performed at the Rising Stars concert to raise funds for the new Ballina Arts Centre.
