Transforming people's lives...through dance.
Now more than ever we need your support to keep the Centre for Dance open and to undertake our performances and programmes.
If you’ve danced across our studio, attended a DTI performance, collected a beaming child from class, participated in a workshop or stretched at our ballet barres, then you know how Dance Theatre of Ireland transforms people's lives.
Please help us to continue to teach, engage and inspire you and others. Having experienced severe reductions to our core funding, your contribution helps our programs go farther in these challenging times, and enables more people to participate in the vitality of dance. Only with your support can Dance Theatre of Ireland reach more people with the transforming art of dance.
Here's what your support enables:
* Dance & Health Initiatives: DTI's Well-Dance programs are reaching hundreds of Older Persons, as well as people living with Parkinsons disease and Dementia. As leaders in the Dance & Health arena, our evidence based methods offer creative pathways to increased mobility, confidence, joy, and quality of life. Our simple mission: Transforming peoples' lives through dance.
* Participation: DTI's Centre for Dance in Dun Laoghaire is a magnet and catalyst for dance activity. Since its opening by President Mary McAleese this professional state-of-the-art Dance Studio provides a creative space where the public (ages 3-93) can experience a range of dance classes and activities. We aim to share the vibrancy of dance with as many people as possible.
* Outreach & Education: We conduct Ireland’s largest Educational Outreach programme in dance, giving workshops to those who might not otherwise experience dance in school, youth and community groups across the country. Through our award-winning DANCE Performance Outreach Programme we fight obesity, develop creativity, foster confidence, teamwork, self-discipline and body awareness. Over 65,000 participants to date.
