We are so grateful for the generous support of our loyal DDF Friends, which has allowed us to share more incredible dance with more people since our very first Festival in 2002.

Become a DDF Friend and you’ll get closer to the Festival, explore your love of dance and be part of a community of like-minded people. Your monthly contribution will:

  • Give audiences the chance to experience iconic dance from around the world in Dublin - dance that inspires us, changes our perspectives and shapes our global culture
  • Provide access to diverse communities through our growing education and outreach activities - enabling us to deliver innovative and inclusive programmes through the year
  • Create vital opportunities for dance artists in Ireland at all stages of their career through residency, showcasing and networking opportunities
  • Enable leading Irish dance artists to create new work through the DDF Commissioning Fund

As a DDF Friend, you’ll be at the heart of the Festival. We’ll invite you to our Friends Events throughout the year and during the Festival. You’ll have opportunities to meet with Festival artists and glimpse behind the scenes. We’ll keep you updated with our dedicated Friends newsletter, acknowledge your generosity on our website and show programmes, offer booking assistance and lots more!
