THE VITALITY of Dance Limerick as both a resource and a magnet for artists in the area will be showcased by an exciting performance taking place next week.

The Limerick Dance Collective, a group of locally based professional dance artists, will present new work collection Sum of Parts, in the John’s Square space on April 30.

Featured artists include Lisa Cahill, Mark Carberry, Lucy Dawson, Kristyn Fontanella, Angie Smalis and others - a group of professional dance artists based in Limerick that has come together to learn from, inspire and support each other in the creation of new work.

Working under the guidance of dance artist in residence Megan Kennedy, the group has emerged over the last number of months, having chosen to make Limerick their base to carve out dance careers here - many choosing to stay on after graduating from the MA in Contemporary Dance at UL.

“We’re delighted to support professional dance artists in Limerick through the Limerick Dance Collective,” said Jenny Traynor.

“This is a really exciting initiative and a wonderful opportunity for some of the top contemporary dance artists based here to work together, to learn from and inspire each other and to show Limerick audiences the calibre of work being created on their doorstep.”
