Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra Dance Course 2024

Friday, 5 April 2024, 11.55pm

Join with other dancers and the Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra for performances of Handel’s Water Music with concerts in Waterford City Hall and Dublin Castle!

In 2024, the Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra will introduce baroque dancers as part of their performance course. In 2024, the IYBO will be performing to Handel’s Water Music. IYBO 2024 will take place from Monday, 15 until Saturday, 20 July 2024.

The course is aimed at dancers, aged 16 – 24 from any dance background who have an interest in learning more about Baroque dance.

The course will be led by Mary Collins, an Early Dance specialist whose research and teaching approach has inspired musicians to look afresh at the dance music that is at the heart of the Baroque repertoire bringing, in turn, a fresh perspective on the great composers of the Baroque era.

Dance rehearsals and lessons will take place in St Finian’s Church, Adelaide Road and in Wesley House, Leeson Park.

Along with dance classes with Mary Collins, participants will join the performance ensemble of the Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra for rehearsals and will also take part in Feldenkrais classes with Sabine Volkmann during the course.

There will be two performances:

Friday, 19 July 2024 in the Large Room of Waterford City Hall in association with Waterford Symphony Club.
Saturday, 20 July 2024 in St Patrick’s Hall, Dublin Castle as part of the Irish Baroque Orchestra’s Dublin HandelFest.

During these performances, the IYBO dancers will dance to music performed live by the Irish Youth Baroque Orchestra. The course is aimed at dancers, aged 16 – 24 from any dance background who have an interest in learning more about Baroque dance.

The course will cost €250 for participation.

Lunch will be provided from Monday – Thursday during rehearsals and on Friday in Waterford before the performance.

The course is non-residential. However, limited accommodation is available in the Dublin area for which there will be a charge of €150 to subsidise the overall cost of staying.

You can apply online via the application form.

Applications will close on Friday, 5 April 2024.
