We nourish dance and creative physical expression
Shawbrook is a haven for dance set on a traditional 18th century farm in a forest of oak, ash and beech trees in Co Longford, Ireland.
Recognised internationally as a centre of excellence for dance and performance, Shawbrook has fostered a nurturing environment of dance creativity for over 30 years. From humble beginnings, Shawbrook Dance is now home to dance studios, a theatre, an outdoor studio, forest walks and a range of on-site accommodation, including Forest Cabins in the woods. Shawbrook Dance is open to professional companies alongside vocational students and Youth Dance Co. Our annual programme includes the Shawbrook Residential Summer School running since 1984, and year round Artists-in-residence programmes, workshops, performances and seasonal festivals.
