Tipperary Dance Residency


Tipperary Excel Arts & Cultural Centre and South Tipperary County Council Arts Service have developed a Dance Residency with the brief of establishing and developing a Contemporary Dance Culture in South Tipperary. The dance resident(s) will be based at Tipperary Excel Arts & Cultural Centre but will also work outside of the Centre in South Tipperary, with a number of community & youth groups. The dance artists will have the opportunity to develop their own practice through use of agreed studio times.

The aims of the residency are to:

  • Develop contemporary dance as an art form in Tipperary.
  • Develop capacity of local young dance artists.
  • Provide professional development for dance artist(s) through use of the Tipperary Excel Dance Studio.
  • Develop capacity of Tipperary Excel as an education and outreach resource with community and school groups.
  • Promote participation through the establishment of a Youth / Community Dance Group(s).
  • Develop a National and International Reputation for the Arts Centre as a venue and resource for professional Contemporary Dance.
