Joyce Theater

“Sophisticated and commanding” (Los Angeles Times), the Trinity Irish Dance Company (TIDC) is the birthplace of progressive Irish dance, an innovative movement genre that “ushered in a new era for Irish step dance” (Chicago Tribune).

Through a blend of percussive power and aerial grace, TIDC sends a clear message of female empowerment. Their St. Patrick’s Day week run celebrates Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard’s unique vision to fuse vibrant Irish traditions with ever-evolving American innovation. The program features Howard’s classics including Soles, a tribal and timeless rhythmic study; Push, an explosion of virtuosic footwork; and Johnny, the early work that altered the Irish dance landscape. New York City premieres include An Sorcas (The Circus), a colorful comment on the battle between substance and spectacle choreographed by Howard and Associate Artistic Director Chelsea Hoy, and American Traffic, a hybrid of Irish step and American tap that plays at the intersection of rhythmic sensibilities and rebellious histories, choreographed by Michelle Dorrance and Melinda Sullivan.
