BOUNCE CLUB NIGHT..

ELECTRIC DREAMS
2 Dec 2019 (20:00) at Róisín Dubh
€5 (€5 members)

Bounce, a club night for adults with intellectual disabilities, takes place once a month on a Monday night in the Roisin Dubh, Galway. Bounce is supported by the award winning That’s Life; an arts programme of the Brothers of Charity Services Galway, which offers people with intellectual disabilities opportunities to discover and realise their artistic potential through working with established artists and participating in high quality arts programmes. Bounce grew out of the highly successful Club Tropicana in the Black Box, giving the ongoing success of this night we decided to create more opportunities for our DJs, VJs and club goers to access club nights more regularly.

Bounce aims to offer a fun, safe and accessible space for people of all abilities to socialise with their friends and dance in a mainstream club environment.

DJ's play a wide range of music, from pop and rock, to hip and RnB to timeless classics that are sure to get everyone dancing.
