Just a bit of information in relation to our twinning events.
In July 2010, the FYI Dance Club was asked to send 4 senior dancers to Romania to take part in 10 days of activities and sight seeing with other young people from France, Germany, England and Romania. We spent the time rehearsing for a performance as part of "Europe en Scene" (an annual event for young people of Europe) which was attended by our own mayor and filmed for local (Romanian) television. We spent the afternoons sight -seeing and getting to know the other participants, many whom are still in contact via facebook with our 4 senior students.
Note: Wicklow will host the Eurpean En Scene event in July 2011. Watch for anyfurther
