Administrative History: Dance Theatre of Ireland was founded in June 1989 by Robert Connor and Loretta Yurick, former members of the Dublin Contemporary Dance Theatre (for which see N37 and N39). Since its inception, the company has created and produced some 40 dance works for theatre, festivals and television, and presented and commissioned work of international choreographers to introduce dance in its wider context to the Irish audience. The company has toured to most major venues in Ireland and participated in some of the most prestigious festivals and theatres in Europe, Korea and the USA. In 2000, with the support of the Arts Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and Dunloe Ewart Properties, Dance Theatre of Ireland opened a purpose-built Centre for Dance to provide a permanent home for the company, rehearsal space for new work, and a venue for dance classes and workshops to dance enthusiasts of all ages.
