“It takes an athlete to dance,
but an artist to be a dancer”

Welcome to Dublin Youth Dance Company!
Dublin Youth Dance Company (DYDC) is Ireland’s premiere contemporary youth-dance group that continuously strives for excellence and high standards. Our main aim is to offer talented young dancers the opportunity to participate in the creation, production and performance of contemporary dance works to the highest-level of expertise.
DYDC offers • Dance training through weekly classes • Opportunities to Perform Locally, National and Internationally • Choreographic opportunities • Festival Performances • Guest teachers/Choreographers • Workshops • International exchange programmes • Personal and Dance career development.
We are so happy to be back in the studio with our dancers. It is so nice to be able to dance together once again and start work on our upcoming projects.
Irish Youth Dance Festival is back!
The IYDF will be taking place on November 20th & 21st in Draíocht, Blanchardstown.
As part of this year's festival we will have a variety of choreographers/artists perform pieces created for DYDC's "Resilience Programme". This Programme is a direct response to artists' expressed need to showcase and exhibit work they have made/are making during Covid-19, which has fundamentally changed the way in which artists make and show work.
Included in the Resilience Programme are Artists - Philip Connaughton, Mihaela Griveva, & Kate Haughton, DYDC Alumni - Nick Nikolaou, Simone O'Toole & Hannah Rogerson and Youth Dance Companies - Steptacular Performing Arts, New Moon Youth Dance Company, DU Dance (NI), Limerick Youth Dance Company, Laois Youth Dance Ensemble & Dublin Youth Circus.
Performances will also include DYDC dancers.
