Associate Artist

Our Associate Artist programme creates meaningful and beneficial opportunities for Associate Artists to work with Liz Roche Company at the highest artistic level over a three-year period. The scheme allows us to create clear pathways for aspiring dancers and dance-makers to reach their own potential and achieve their goals while enabling us to build much needed professional capacity within Ireland’s dance sector.
