A SPACE TO DANCE. A PLACE TO DREAM.
The landmark building at 42 Fairview Strand is CoisCéim’s new home. Together with our offices, the site houses THE DANCE STUDIO & THE ATRIUM – spaces for creativity to take shape that are sought-after by dancers, theatre makers, photographers and other artistic professionals in Dublin.
Located in Fairview, a 10 minute cycle from the City Centre and short stroll to Fairview Park, both the THE DANCE STUDIO & THE ATRIUM can be hired for rehearsals, private classes, auditions, and more. Full of beautiful natural light, with double height ceilings and aged brick walls, THE DANCE STUDIO is also fitted with custom built, heated, sprung floors, portable barres, mirrors, sound system and technical options (see full specifications below).
Constructed in 1889, 42 Fairview Strand, Dublin 3 was built as a post office. With the support of capital grant funding from the Arts Council and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport & Media, in 2020/21 – CoisCéim customised the building to bring it’s embodied energy to the fore and add two new spaces to dance in the capital. At the same time, the landlord conducted a series of renovations to restore the structure’s external beauty. The company introduced itself to the neighbourhood with A REACTION TO PLACE – an Arts Council commission to architect Jenny O’Leary – as part of Ireland’s largest architecture festival, OPEN HOUSE DUBLIN in October 2021 outlining the company’s desire to harness the rich heritage of our home to develop a self-sustaining space where dance can thrive.
