Dance Cork Firkin Crane

Dance Cork Firkin Crane champions dance.

Located in a heritage building in Shandon in Cork’s north city centre, we specialise in supporting dance artists, presenting dance performances and encouraging people in Cork to engage with dance of all kinds. Our vision is for dance to be one of the most vital and engaging artforms in Cork and Munster.  Our mission is to promote and creatively advance dance as an artform. We do this in three ways: 

  • Supporting the development of dance;
  • Sustaining the holistic development of the dance artist; 
  • Delivering supports to artists to bring dance to diverse communities through learning, audience development and participation. 

Our programme is mission-driven, aiming to identify, nurture, and support local and regional artists while simultaneously introducing artists and audiences to national and international choreographers.
