Dance can be experienced through a diversity of cultures and forms, yet is universal. It is a potent tool for the development of both the individual and the community. The profound belief in these propositions, endorsed over many years of experience by respected dance practitioners – Mags Byrne and Royston Maldoom – underpins the work of DU Dance (NI). The company’s high quality performances include both professionals and community members based on inter-generational, cross-community and inter-cultural work.
The ever-industrious ponydance, champions of comedy dance theatre, have performed to fewer than ten people in parish halls and over 10,000 people in the Aviva Stadium.
