Support & Join

Join us as a Dublin Dance Festival Friend


Become a Dublin Dance Festival Friend and you will play a leading role in moving dance forward.

We believe in bringing people together to experience exceptional dance – dance that inspires us, makes us think and helps us to understand the world that we live in. We believe in supporting our dance artists to achieve their artistic potential and create outstanding work. We care about reaching and uniting diverse communities through dance and creative expression. We are whole-heartedly committed to putting our beliefs into action - and we invite you to join us.

Become a DDF Friend and your year-round support will:

  • Bring the most important dance artists from around the globe to Dublin - the dance icons, the pioneers, the challengers and the culture makers
  • Generate valuable opportunities for dance artists in Ireland through our residency programmes and commissioning funds, and provide performance, showcasing and international networking opportunities
  • Share dance with new people and places year-round, encouraging expression, inclusion and creativity through our innovative education and outreach projects

As a DDF Friend, you’ll be at the heart of the Festival. We’ll invite you to our Friends Events throughout the year, our full Programme Launch in March, and exclusive receptions 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 on our show programmes, offer booking assistance and lots more!
