Inclusive Dance Cork (IDC) is a training programme for people with and without disabilities who are interested in learning inclusive dance methods. It is designed for dancers to explore expressive movement and discuss a variety of ways to dance, facilitate, and support dancers of all abilities.

Initially conceived by Yvonne Coughlan, chairperson of Dance Cork Firkin Crane, this ambitious programme is made possible by all of its collaborators, with its home being at Dance Cork Firkin Crane. Partners University College Cork, Suisha Inclusive Arts: Cope Foundation, and Cork Education and Training Board provide essential support for participants and accreditation opportunities.

The programme is generously funded by ReThink Ireland through the Disability Participation and Awareness Fund 2023 and the Community Foundation for Ireland through a donation by an anonymous donor.
