Government’s 5 Level Covid-19 Plan

Dance Ireland's Operation Response

February 19, 2021

As we await the revised Plan for Living with COVID from the Government, we wish to remind our members that DanceHouse may open for essential rehearsal for broadcast, and this will continue at all levels. From March 8, we will be open for individual professional training and again, our aim is for this to continue at all levels, in addition to all the existing protocols. Contact us on info@danceireland.ie or 01 8558800 for more information

Below please find Dance Ireland's operations response to the levels and what this means for those who are using DanceHouse for rehearsals or classes.

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 4 and 5 classes will take place online.
