Marie Duffy Foundation

Support the Foundation

The primary objective of our Foundation is to promote excellence in Irish Dancing and we are dedicated to supporting and stimulating innovation and creativity through our annual awards and grants.

Irish Dance has gained in popularity over the last few years due to the huge success of shows such as Lord of the Dance, Feet of Flames, Celtic Tiger. and Riverdance. It is an industry which is now worth over £1 billion per year worldwide with schools and competitions in countries on all continents.

The future of Irish Dance is very exciting and we want to encourage this passion for dance by creating the opportunity for talented individuals to explore and push the boundaries just as a certain young man from Chicago once did a few years ago.

If your life has been touched by the world of dance or you are inspired by our ideals and aims and would like to support our vision, we would love to hear from you, so please do get in touch. We are open to new ideas and contributions and would value your input, whether it be by applying for a grant or offering us help in whatever way you are able.
