“There’s something healing about dance without it being dance movement therapy. The act of moving together – always together – gives a sense of community in a group that is often not able to express or articulate so much... Dance creates bridges where words are not enough.” Ailish Claffey, Curator

“This year’s Summer School programme reaffirms the Arts Service's commitment to dance, arts, health & well-being and capacity building for artists and communities over many years. Come join us on a week of discovery!” Lucina Russell, Arts Officer, Kildare County Council
