Dublin dance group appeals for support to represent Ireland at The Dance World Cup finals

A group of 28 young dancers based in the heart of Dublin’s north inner city are appealing for help to get them to the Dance World Cup this summer. Arkins Dance Academy, based on Sean McDermott Street, was founded 29 years ago by Francesa Arkins and has since been taken over by her daughter Alysia. The group has been chosen to represent Ireland at the competition in June and is appealing to everyone to support their fundraising efforts. The Dance World Cup finals take place from June 27 until July 6 and will require the group to raise almost €40,000 to travel to Prague in the Czech Republic for the competition. Choreographer Alysia is mentor to over 100 talented children at Arkins Dance Academy. Members pay €3 per class, but this “is just to cover electricity bills”. Multiple raffles and other events have been organised, which has seen the dance academy raise around €9,000 so far.
