The Dance Video

With the lifting of restrictions, The Opacas were at long last able to realise a long held ambition to do full on dance video. Legendary Galway baed choreographer Declan J. Gardiner came on board to help put an extended cast through a routine in the Galway Bay Hotel on Feb 20th 2022. Following rehearsals, the ensemble performed the routine on Saltill Promenade during strorm Eunice (a force 9 storm). It added production value!

As a bonus, the band met Chaosheng Zhang on the prom and its his photography that is used

for the artwork.
