Hip Hop

Supported by Fingal County Council Sports Office three free Online Live Hip Hop Classes will be broadcast to devices across Fingal. The Classes supported are part of the new approach by Fingal Sports Office in providing opportunities of physical activity for teenagers in a safe and fun way and working within Sport Ireland’s Return to Sport Guidelines.

The classes will be broadcast through Zoom on Tuesdays the 15th, 22nd and 29th  of September from 6pm to 7pm. There is no charge but participants need to pre-register in order to get their Zoom invitation. The sessions will be led and choreographed by Donna Moran from Irish Hip Hop Master Champions Fit Kids/Fit Teens Dance School. 

Mayor of Fingal Cllr. David Healy commented: ‘It is wonderful to see these online Hip Hop Classes supported by Fingal Sports Office, and are a fun way to encourage participation in physical activity by people who may not be interested in taking part in traditional sports’

Donna Moran, who choreographs the classes, is a very experienced Dance instructor and represented Ireland with the Raw Edge Crew at The World Hip Hop Championships and made the Semi-final of Sky Ones "Got To Dance”

‘Donna has  worked closely with the Fingal Sports Office on programmes such as Exercise: Energise and Fingal Sports Office Hip Hop Challenge’ stated Fingal Sports Development Officer Caitríona Geraghty, ‘these programmes which are  part -funded through Sport Ireland’s Women in Sport initiatives  aim to increase physical activity among teenage girls  and hopefully  in this case boys through a fun activity’.

Margaret Geraghty, Director of Services of Housing and Community said “I welcome this great initiative between Sports, Operations and Environment which reinforces the importance of continuing implementing a strong programme of interesting online activities that encourage young people’s participation”

Throughout the Summer online platforms have been used to engage with communities with the Fingal Digifit sessions, which are still available to view on the Healthy Fingal Learning Portal learning.fingal.ie and Fingal Sports Office’s Social Media Platform and provided a home workout for those looking to keep fit.

Any aspiring Hip Hop Dancers can find out how to register for these classes by following @FingalSports on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook which they will find the link to the registration.  For more information contact Caitríona Geraghty, Sports Development Officer [email protected]
