Covid-19: Level 5 Response

Following the Government’s announcement on Monday19 October that Level 5 restrictions are now in place, DanceHouse will be closed from Thursday 22 October for the next six weeks in line with these measures. This move to close will be re-evaluated and informed by the Government's next Covid-19 announcement on restrictions in approximately six weeks’ time.

During this time, dance artists can continue to progress their professional development through:

  • Our Morning Professional Training online 
  • Engaging with all programming, to include New Movements, Digital Encounters, Producing Dance and Healthier Dancer Days 
  • Support and advice from the Dance Ireland team. All are working remotely can be contacted by email (details here)

This may be the time to consider applying for the LaunchPad Awards, or to connect with the wider community through our Members Forums. But also keep an eye on our website for further opportunities for support over the next six weeks. We are here for you.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff, members, and stakeholders of DanceHouse is at the forefront of all our planning and decisions making.

Since the 13 March 2020 Dance Ireland’s Covid-19 responses have maintained a focus on Health & Safety, social distancing requirements and increased hygiene protocols; and a particular consideration given to the safeguarding of young people and those considered at higher risk.

All of Dance Ireland’s plans are live documents which are supported by comprehensive reviews of our policies and procedures, and analysis of building access; capacity and Health & Safety protocol with a risk assessment and mitigation check list applied to each studio booking, class or activity until further notice.
