Spring Moves Dance Festival 2024

11 May 2024

SpringMoves Dance Festival is an energetic celebration of dance in Wexford, centred around the National Opera House and Wexford Arts Centre and moving out onto the streets of Wexford Town! The festival is an opportunity for Wexford locals to engage with national and international dance artists and companies and to discover new dance in our communities. SMDF is a resource for professional dance artists and dance practitioners and a meeting place for creative research and collaboration.

The main Festival Day, Saturday May 11th 2024, brings together DANCE in all its exciting and touching forms to Wexford Town and County. The Festival holds a wide range of dances, from the traditional Sean-nós and Ceili up to the Contemporary and Street. 

We are inviting audiences of all ages and levels to come, enjoy and perhaps participate in a day full of dance.
