DU Dance (NI) is a professional dance development company based in Belfast and working across the island of Ireland, the UK and internationally. Our aim is to introduce young people to dance and the creative arts, and to advocate dance as a tool for facilitating personal and social development. Our vision is to advance dance as an art form, build community connections and foster tolerance and respect. With performance as an integral part of the process, DU Dance provides access to innovative contemporary dance workshops and projects across communities, which may often have limited or no dance provision, challenging traditional views of the relevance and value of dance. Opportunity Summary DU Dance facilitates an integrated youth dance group Sutemos - for young people aged 11-24 years, from a wide range of cultural and educational backgrounds, based in Dungannon, Co Tyrone. The group meets weekly during term times and works towards public performances.
