“Impossibly complex”— New York Times
A fusion of Ireland’s vibrant and long-standing dance-form and elements of American innovation, Trinity Irish Dance Company (TIDC) dazzles audiences with its hard-driving percussive power, lightning-fast agility, and aerial grace. Minutes into watching the awe-inspiring precision of its dancers and musicians, TIDC expands whatever notions you may have about Irish dance, revealing its limitless possibilities. Dance Magazine calls it “irresistible.” TIDC is everything you expect but nothing like you can imagine! Founded in 1990 by Choreographer/Artistic Director Mark Howard, Trinity Irish Dance Company was the birthplace of progressive Irish dance, which opened new avenues of artistic expression leading directly to commercial productions such as Riverdance.
Howard’s Emmy Award-winning work has been met with great critical acclaim around the globe, with sold-out tours in Europe and Asia and appearances in such distinguished US venues as The Kennedy Center, New York’s Joyce Theater and UCLA’s Royce Hall, among many others. Trinity has appeared in feature films by Disney, DreamWorks, Touchstone and Universal and on numerous national television programs including six appearances on the Tonight Show. It has also been the subject of several celebrated PBS documentaries and specials.
