First Fortnight: BeDance with Bernadette Divilly

Please Note:
Please bring a warm scarf, notebook and pen

Dance Ireland, in partnership with Galway Dance Project and First Fortnight, have come together on this dance programme curated by choreographer Karen Gleeson and facilitated by Irish and international artists.
This year, participants can take part in a series of workshops and events focused on dance and well-being. The events are open to all and will take place live in Dublin and Galway and online via Zoom.

BeDance is an invitation to meditate, to move our body mind, and to relate through playful dance exchange. It’s a good way to regulate our nervous systems and to work with each other, welcoming room for our cultural influences and our different movement practices. It allows for diversity of dance movement skills and abilities, suitable for all adults regardless of dance experience.

BeDance is dance artist Bernadette Divilly’s synthesis of her influence from Contemplative Dance Practice, from engaging with an international community, originated by Barbara Dilley. Contemplative Dance is a practice of moving meditation that employs the intelligence of the body, psyche and imagination to seek wholeness and integration
