Take some time out to explore this series of online events focused on dance and wellbeing offered by Dance Ireland in partnership with choreographer Áine Stapleton, First Fortnight, and Galway Dance Project.

Curated by Áine Stapleton, these events will be led by international artists who offer different perspectives on mental health and wellbeing through their dance practice.

The events are open to all and will be hosted online via Zoom. Dance Ireland is the national dance development organisation, enabling people, places, ideas, communities and genres of dance to come together – to ignite action, provoke thought and connect with each other.

(All fees go directly to paying the workshop leaders.)

Dance Workshop: ME. MY HOUSE. MY DANCE.
with Clint Lutes
Fri 15 Jan, 3pm - 5pm, €5

This will be a seriously playful workshop and meeting place. After a brief landing process and warmup, play with improvisation based movement games and get to know each other a bit better. We’ll investigate our homes through guided improvisation and get to know them a bit differently, and perhaps ourselves a bit differently in the process. In smaller groups we will create mini choreographic scores and share them with each other. My hope is to connect you to your body, in your space, and connect us all across virtual boundaries, with humour and sincerity.
