Event Details

"[stretches] the limits of what Irish dance can do aesthetically and rhythmically" – Chicago Tribune

Recognized for ushering in "a new era for Irish step dance" (Chicago Tribune) and hailed as "impossibly complex" (The New York Times), this uniquely Irish American company is the birthplace of progressive Irish dance.

Through a blend of percussive power and aerial grace, the company’s repertory has elevated the art form for nearly three decades.

A primarily female company, with 18 female dancers and 3 male dancers, Trinity Irish Dance Company also sends a consistent message of female empowerment, celebrating the strength of women through casting, choreography, and intentional costuming.

For Dance St. Louis' November 11th presentation, Trinity Irish Dance Company features a variety of works, ranging from those displaying virtuosic footwork to a hybrid of Irish step and American tap to original, classic pieces by founding artistic director Mark Howard that reflect his unique fusion of vibrant Irish traditions with ever-evolving American innovation.

The evening’s presentation includes live music by a band fronted by Killarney-born, New York-based singer/songwriter Brendan O’Shea.

6:30 p.m. - Free “Speaking of Dance” pre-show talk with representatives from Trinity Irish Dance Company (Terrace Lobby)
7:30 p.m. - Performance (A-B Performance Hall)
