Government’s 5 Level Covid-19 Plan

Dance Ireland's Operation Response

Following the Government’s announcement of the Resilience and Recovery 2020-2021: Plan for Living with COVID-19 on 15 September, we are sharing with you Dance Ireland's operations response to the levels and what this means for those who are using DanceHouse for rehearsals or classes.

Read more about Level 3 in DanceHouse here.

Please note, that Morning Professional Class will continue during all levels. The continuity of a daily practice is essential for professional dancers and we will ensure that our programmed classes remain available for all access during this time. During Level 3, 4 and 5 classes will take place online.
