The Floor is Yours! - Booking now open through Dance Ireland
Age & Opportunity and Dance Ireland present a networking day for dancers working with older people in Ireland.
Friday 6th December @ Dance Ireland
10 am to 4pm
(followed by a performance showcase)
The Floor is Yours! invites dance artists who work with older people to come together to connect, reflect and share their practice. The aim of day will be to recognise, build and strengthen the community of dance artists working with older people, scale and map the needs of this community and share some of the knowledge, tools and skills that already exist in the sector. Beyond this, our goal is to improve provision and access to dance for older people.
We invite you to join us if you are a professional dance artist or company working in this area or would like to work in this area, or an organisation interested in this work or supporting this work. The day will consist of workshops, discussions and presentations from those working in the field.
A full schedule of the day’s events and speakers will be available shortly. This is a free event, but places are limited.
