Since the beginning of April 2020, The High Kicks of Limerick (an ensemble of dance artists aged over 50yrs) met and danced virtually in our We’re Gonna Dance with Somebody project, led by choreographer Kristyn Fontanella.
When the yearly High Kicks performance project could not go ahead due to Covid-19 restrictions, Kristyn and the group decided to move online and virtually dance together. The project focused on staying connected through a love of dance, even during these difficult and challenging times. The group rehearsed together through video tutorials and online Zoom dance classes, learning a dance combination to Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance with Somebody.
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
