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 will focus on taking inspiration from the outdoors, bringing nature into the studio, our relationship with the earth/environment & explores working with site-specific concepts.
