Dance2Connect 2020

Dance2Connect is a 3 day Urban Dance festival at The Civic. The festival is the first of its kind on Irish shores and aims to grow in a similar direction to Breaking Convention (UK).  With an emphasis on creating a platform for emerging choreographers, intergenerational exchange, inclusion and diversity, the festival establishes a new ‘way in’ to creativity and artistic processes for a generation of young people in South Dublin County and beyond. It’s the third edition of Dance2Connect Dublin and we are excited to make this one even more special!!
