Dance2Connect is a 3 day Street Dance Festival, comprising of an evening of Dance Theatre (Friday), dance ‘Battles’ (Saturday) and Workshops with Internationally acclaimed artists (Sunday). The festival is the first of its kind in Ireland, inviting audiences to view and learn from some of the most exciting dance artists working today. With an emphasis on creating a platform for emerging choreographers, intergenerational exchange, inclusion and diversity, the festival offers a number of different opportunities to get involved. Experimenting with live electronic musicians, videographers, DJ’s and dancers, Dance2Connect aims to open creative doors for young people in South Dublin and beyond.
The festival is a partnership with Tallaght Community Arts & Civic Theatre, supported by Arts Council Ireland Festival Funding, South Dublin County Council and in association with NOISE Moves Dance Festival. This 2018 festival includes mentorship LAB programme at DanceHouse, funded by Dance Ireland.
