Dance Ireland Residency Programme for Members without funding.

The Dance Ireland Residency Programme exists to support dance artists to create new dance work, engage in artistic research, and maintain a studio practice. Residencies are aimed at non-funded artists or projects, we offer support through wholly-subsidised studio space.

The Residency open call is now closed for 2020.

All professional Dance Ireland Members, including companies, are eligible to apply for a Dance Ireland Residency.

  • A residency is granted based on submission of the online form and is subject to availability of space requested
  • Residencies are for a minimum of a week, Monday to Friday, 10am to 6pm, or a maximum of 2 weeks, Members can apply for up to a maximum of 2 weeks per open call. This is subject to availability.
  • For regionally based artists/companies, a Dance Ireland Residency creates an opportunity for you to share your work and process with the wider dance community at DanceHouse. Regionally based artists/companies can apply for the National Residency Fund. These additional supports could be used for accommodation, travel, and/or per diems.

In return, Residency recipients may be asked to contribute to our training programme or show work. The type of engagement will be agreed between Dance Ireland and the artist(s).
