Art in the Park events

Be part of an urban dance explosion this Saturday (12 May 2007) afternoon! Whether you're a dance star or think you have two left feet… spring into action and give hip hop dance a try!

HYPE Dance Company professional Allie Wood will be teaching hip hop dance moves, leading to a group performance at the end of the event. The action takes place at Upperthorpe Peace Gardens (behind Upperthorpe Healthy Living Centre) from 1 until 4pm. Trainers and loose clothing are strongly recommended.

There'll also be an urban visual art activity, offering you another way to express your creativity, along with the usual chalking, painting and circus skills on offer. Come and celebrate the spring season in style!

This event is free and suitable for all ages to participate in. Free refreshments will also be provided.

Upperthorpe Urban May Day
1:00pm to 4:00pm Saturday 12 May 2007

Upperthorpe Peace Gardens is a small green space behind Upperthorpe Healthy Living Centre in Daniel Hill, Upperthorpe. Trams go frequently to Infirmary Road from the City Centre on the Meadowhall-Middlewood line. From there, take Albert Terrace Road and then Shipton Street into Upperthorpe. The number 31 bus from Angel Street in the City Centre will drop you outside the Post Office – only a minute's walk away from the Peace Gardens.
