The College of Dance’s Graduation Performances are the pinnacle of the College’s year and widely acclaimed.
The performances provide an opportunity to see some of Ireland’s best young dancers perform in a wide variety of styles, including Classical Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Tap and Musical Theatre. It is a highly entertaining, dynamic and professionally staged production that consistently receives rave reviews.
The Graduation Performances showcase exciting original works of choreography specially created by the faculty. These usually include a unique contemporary work for the entire cast, a captivating jazz spectacular, a commissioned classical ballet and choral item.
These annual performances should not be missed and are a fantastic event for anyone interested in dance.
They are very special occasions for everyone involved in the College, the students, their families and the wider dance community.
The formal graduation ceremony takes place on Saturday evening after the final performance.
“The show was a mind blowing display of dancing, and singing, talent. The diversity of styles showcased, from ballet to tap to contemporary, was wonderful and all of a professional standard … Something very special.”
