Presented by the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
Springboard ’19 is an exciting new showcase of Ireland’s next generations of young professional dancers emerging out of the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. Contemporary Dance students from across all years, including graduating fourth years, will present a program of compelling and artistically distinct dance pieces by choreographers Jazmin Chiodi, Ursula Robb, and Grant McLay.
This year the IWA are delighted to be partnering with Dance Limerick to present these works in the unique surroundings of their performance venue, St John’s Church in John's Square.
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
