Fund a Dancer

To make our dance performances, we need the dancers and dance makers to do it.

At Liz Roche Company, one of our long-term goals is to assist the development of a new generation of dance artists who can have sustainable professional careers in dance and can contribute to the wider contemporary dance landscape in Ireland.

Our Associate Artist Scheme allows us to foster growth and support of a dance artist to develop new work, training and their overall professional career. This 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. We want to create further opportunities for our Associate Artists to grow, and our Fund a Dancer scheme will help us do that.

If you decide to Fund a Dancer, you will directly impact the growth of their professional career by offering them further access to studio space, training and resources for work. See below the different ways you can help.
