A Step in Time: The Story of Irish Dance

25 July - 22 January
The exhibition charts the history of Irish Dance from the late 1800s to present day, through costume, embroidery, images and film.

The exhibition includes reference to the 1904 Feis in the Glens of Antrim, a landmark event in Ulster's recent cultural history, with competition in music, drama, craft work and dance.
 
Embroidered costumes, medals and certificates will tell the story of the development of both dance schools and governing bodies for Irish Dance.
 
The exhibition will display, for the first time, a selection from the museum's collection of costume for the Patricia Mulholland Ballet. Patricia Mulholland was one of Ireland's most talented choreographers, performers and teachers of Irish Dance, for almost 50 years from the late 1940s.
