“As women we are really powerful and whatever we put our minds to in this world we can actually do it and achieve it”
Participant, The Missy Elliott Project, Dublin 2019
“It was a life changing experience for me. It’s motivating me to be the person I wanted to see growing up. It’s pushing me to reach more young people in meaningful and impactful ways. I believe this is only the beginning for those talented young women, and I loved being a part of that beginning."

Sign up for The Missy Elliott Project and immerse yourself in an intensive programme of dance, music, spoken word and digital workshops inspired by the creative power of Hip Hop and R&B legend, Missy Elliott. Mentored by an experienced creative team, led by director and choreographer Emmy Lahouel, participants will create a digital experience together and join the global conversation about the dreams and realities of young women of colour around the world.
Dublin Dance Festival is delighted to partner with Dance Limerick to bring this international project by the award-winning artist Selina Thompson back to Ireland in 2020, with the generous support of the ESB Energy for Generations Fund and Northern Trust.
