Fast Track To Dance - Apply Today!

FAST TRACK TO DANCE

LIVE COLLISION AND DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL


Fast Track to Dance is back, after a very successful pilot programme in 2013. Live Collision and Dublin Dance Festival invite you to apply to take part in this joint initiative for dance audiences.

This is an exceptional opportunity for anyone who is curious about dance, but hasn’t seen very many dance performances. It is for those of you who are ‘dance novices’ but who also sport an enthusiasm and interest to see more dance shows and to know more about the art form.

The aim of this initiative is to bring people to dance. Fast Track to Dance is a completely immersive weekend at Dublin Dance Festival delving into the Festival’s vibrant programme of work.

Two groups of 15 people will be selected to form two Fast Track To Dance groups. Together as a group you will embark on a weekend packed full of dance - a real festival experience! You will see multiple shows from both national and international dance makers, you will meet the creative team behind the Festival, you will attend post show discussions and you will have a group round-table with some of the makers/choreographers. The one thing you won’t do is dance, but you will find out a whole lot more about going to see dance, about the Festival and about the artists who present dance work in Ireland and beyond.

Fast Track to Dance will form a significant part of the Dublin Dance Festival’s 10th Festival programme and celebration. Fast Track to Dance is produced and facilitated by Lynnette Moran (Live Collision founder and director) and Niamh McCann (Actor, Coach and Facilitator).

Fast Track is a short sharp burst of activity that will introduce the group to dance as an art form – and will build a critical language and confidence around seeing and talking about dance performances.
