Update- 4 Dec

Dance Ireland welcomes the change to allow individual training in dance to go ahead at Level 3 and are seeking clarification from the department before we proceed with any changes.

Our goal is to ensure the return to dance is safe and we are working with the Arts Council and the Dept of TCASM to ensure this.

We hope to be able to update you all next week and look forward to the announcement of the Arts Council’s guidelines on dance as well as the publication of our own guidelines for professional dance (which are going through the approval process at the moment.)
