Come & join the new Waterford Dance Artist-in-Residence. Dee Grant in an inspiring professional development workshop experience for dancers & movement artists looking to engage with the tools of making dance for an outdoor performance environment. This workshop focusses on taking inspiration from the outdoors, bringing nature into the studio, our relationship with the earth/environment & explores working with site-specific concepts. (This Saturday explores material linked to our Summer Dance Project 2018)

This workshop forms part of a series of professional development workshops by Dee Grant over the year, that explore the development of the solo artist & nurture of key improvisation/choreographic skills to help advance professional work with emerging or mid-career artists.

Dee is former founder and artistic director of Myriad Dance and has shown produced/choreographed work at Dublin Dance Festival, Dublin Fringe Festivals, Carlow Arts Festivals, Spraoi International Festival, Wexford Fringe Festival and Dan Celebration Arizona. In the past, Dee has worked with Wolfgang Hoffman, Ella Clarke, Janis Claxton and Joan Davis.  Dee regularly lectures at Waterford Institute of Technology and has vast experience of leading initiative performance projects for several local authorities through-out Ireland.
