The Irish Youth Dance Festival celebrates its 20th Festival – making it Ireland's longest running dance festival. This unique and hugely popular event will offer audiences both new to and familiar with contemporary dance the opportunity to see the most exciting up-and-coming young dance talent Ireland has to offer.

The programme for 2021 will feature young dancers aged from 12 to 25 live and on film performances from Dublin Youth Circus, Laois Youth Dance Ensemble, Limerick Youth Dance Company, New Moon Dance Company (Cork), Steptacular Performing Arts (Dublin) and Dublin Youth Dance Company (DYDC), who present the festival and is Ireland's premiere contemporary youth dance group, and are known for their passionate, imaginative and often cross-disciplinary work.

The festival will also be presenting work by established Irish artists, including Liz Roche and John Scott. Other artists involved are Kate Haughton, Mihaela Grivieva and DYDC’s alumni Nick Nikolaou, Hannah Rogerson and Simone O’Toole.
