    Dublin Dance Festival brings artists and audiences together to create and share exceptional, provocative and relevant dance experiences. Each year in May, DDF presents the best Irish and international dance performances in venues throughout the city to a growing and evolving audience. DDF is a vital platform for artists and the creation of new work. We generate opportunities for artists, both nationally and internationally, through residencies, commissions and partnerships and by encouraging artistic collaboration, experimentation, risk-taking and innovation in dance. DDF actively seeks-out, establishes and evolves collaborations with like-minded organisations, venues and strategic partners to create opportunities year-round for audiences and artists, exploring new models for producing and touring dance.
