Trinity Irish Dance Company at Big Top Chautauqua
Trinity dazzles audiences with hard-driving percussive power, lightning-fast agility, aerial grace, and the awe-inspiring precision of its dancers. It also offers something profoundly more significant - the transcendence of craft to art and a dance legacy that is rooted in tradition yet forward looking and ever evolving. The result is a thoroughly fresh, engaging, and integrity filled vision that goes beyond the source without losing touch with its essence. 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.
