Rock’n Roll Dance Leixlip – starts Tues 17th Oct

Informal Adults 4 steps Rock’n roll dance class. – Tuesdays: 8pm-9.30pm

This weekly course takes place every Tuesdays @ the Leixlip Young and Community Center (Newtown House, Captains Hill, Leixlip, Co. Kildare). The class consists on a one-hour class where the 4 steps style of Rock ‘n roll dancing is taught followed by 30min dancing & socializing.


We are dancing on a wide variety of songs, from classical rock’n roll songs to modern/now-a-day music.


You do not need to register to participate to the course. You can come alone or with a partner. For more information & contact, check the Facebook group page, or show up at one of the class or contract the LYCC.



Volunteers organize this activity. Although they are serious about teaching you how to dance Rock’n Roll, their main objective is to share experiences, and meet people. The Leixlip Young and Community Center is supporting this activity by providing the room and equipment.


We hope you can join us…..and spread the word!

Funding update Local Youth Club Grant Scheme 2017


Doesn’t our pool table look fantastic! Thanks to The Billiard Company for such a great job recovering the pool table.


With funding from the Local Youth Club Grant Scheme 2017 we are upgrading and updating some of our youth club equipment. More updates on this to follow


Thanks to







Tesco Community Fund

**Attention youth club members and families ***

We were very lucky to be included in the Tesco Community Fund in the Maynooth store over the summer. Tesco Ireland presented us with a cheque for €305 on Thursday 7th September.


This money will go towards buying new equipment for our Youth Clubs.

And thank you to everyone who gave us their blue tokens
