We provide an inclusive and welcoming space for dance work to be developed and viewed through a year-round programme of residencies, workshops, studio rentals, community programmes, dance performances and special events.
Our programme is mission driven, aiming to identify, nurture, and support local and regional artists while simultaneously introducing artists and audiences to national and international choreographers. We support an annual dance artist in residence and are developing other national dance advocacy projects in partnership with Dance Ireland, Dance Limerick, Galway Dance Project and Tipperary Dance.
Artist residencies supporting the research, development, and production of new work are a central aspect of DCFC’s programme. In addition, a series of professional presentations, with a lens towards audience engagement, take place throughout the year. Professional and community classes for adults and youth are also offered.
