“Sophisticated and commanding” (LA Times), Trinity Irish Dance Company is everything you’d expect, and like nothing you can imagine. Since 1990, the innovative repertory company has transformed the trajectory of Irish dance and stretched its limits. Don’t expect a rehash of Gaelic step dancing – TIDC combines Irish dancing and music traditions with American innovations, like rock and contemporary music. It’s a dance show for music lovers and a music show for dance lovers, says Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard. The uniquely Irish-American company ushered in a new era for Irish step dance, leading directly to productions such as “Riverdance.” Blending percussive power and aerial grace, TIDC celebrates women’s’ inner and outer strength. Don’t miss a beat – see the fast footwork and feel the pounding rhythms of Trinity Irish Dance Company.
