Can I get discounted studio space as a Member?
As a Member, you are covered under our Liability insurance, to rent a studio. There are no ‘discounted rates’ for Members, but we offer a wide range of full day/half day options, and different rates for studios- if you wish to book a space, email our Venue Officers on firstname.lastname@example.org and they will give you all the info you need.
As a member you are entitled to discounted rates on renting our equipment- such as cameras, projectors, dance floors and more.
Do you have an area I can use for meetings/research?
The Artists’ Resource Room is our working home for dance artists, providing a space to work and research outside of the studio. It is free to book for all Members, subject to availability- contact our Venue Officers to book.
I am looking for advice on my career- who do I talk to?
We offer dedicated one to one Artist Advisory Sessions with members of staff- in person, or via phone/skype. These can be on the following areas, or anything dance related: Revising your artistic plans…..Developing your practice….Funding and grant applications….Project planning….Communications …..Professional development….Studio space in DanceHouse…..Artist Social Welfare scheme
I am working on a project and wish to receive support- what do I do?
We provide letters of support for artists applying for funding and grants. Please note, requests for letters of support must be received at least one week in advance of application deadlines, to allow time for consultation with the artist and completion.
I am applying for the Artist Social Welfare Scheme- can Dance Ireland help?
We can provide you with a certifying letter, as a Professional Member, for the Social Welfare Scheme for Professional Artists.
I want to work professionally in dance- where do I find jobs and do I need my own website?
Member Profile: We will create a unique profile for each Member, to showcase their experience to date, and to link people to their work- this is a valuable tool to use, especially if you do not have your own website.
We regularly post opportunities on our website for any professional opportunities we see- however we are not an agency and cannot guarantee work- we are here to support your development as an artist.
I am looking to connect and meet other artists…
You will receive invitations to Members Meetings- these meetings are a chance to meet your peers, as well as learn from one another.
