Dance Alliance Programme

The 20234programme is now full. Please register your interest for 2025 by emailing

Dublin Youth Dance Company is committed to assisting with the development of youth dance in Ireland.

DYDC is collaborating with 2 youth dance leaders/directors - Trish Roche, Akasha Movement Dance Company, Waterford & Lucy Dawson, Limerick Youth Dance Company, to support them with their organisational skills and artistic development throughout 2024 through a series of meetings via Zoom.


The aim of this programme is to support new and emerging youth dance directors and leaders in Ireland. It also supports their artistic and company development. These twin actions express and affirm DYDC’s leadership role in contemporary youth dance, especially as it overlaps with professional practice. We believe that collegiality and a shared agenda with other companies is good for contemporary youth dance and for the wider dance ecology in Ireland.

"Mariam inspired and encouraged from start to finish and I am so grateful, thank you."

"I found Mariam to be full of information, a great listener and I found the whole interaction to be very inspiring. It is very rare to get one-on-one time with a professional of Mariam’s credentials. ."

"Mariam is so wonderful to talk to, so approachable, to the point and offers so much advice as well as creative suggestions you may otherwise not tease out yourself.  ."
