You CAN DANCE Fesitval 2014

Wicklow County Arts office in association with Wicklow Local Sports Partnership invites Dance Practitioners to submit applications for the creation of a programme in the Arklow area for 2014. A successful candidate will devise, develop and engage with young people in both and collaborative and performative way. This joint initiative seeks to cultivate the synergies between dance, movement, creativity and general physical well-being through workshops/performances.

Previous ensembles of dancers have included the Dance Theatre of Ireland, Cois Céim, Niamh Condron, Kathleen Kelly and Myriad Dance. This year the Festival aims to create partnerships by engaging with local youth groups. Previous festivals have featured primary teacher dance development workshops, secondary school workshops, the awarding of bursaries for young emerging dance practitioners and both indoors and outdoor performances for young people.

The festival will ideally be run in the months of September, October or November at the suggestion of the applicant and is ultimately subject to approval by Wicklow Country Council. Short listing via interviews may be carried out.
