Thank you...To every show captain for leading your teams through tight schedules and long days with such confidence.
Thank you... to every head instructor for working so hard to get these shows ready for the stage, cheering us through the parades, and being the role models our show captains and dancers aspire to be.
Thank you... to every single parent behind the scenes whether you drove a carpool, emceed a show, played the music, stayed backstage, passed out a flyer, tied a shoe, or collected a conflict.
Thank you... to our Booster Club, specifically Kevin Trant, Dominick Owens, Jim Frugo & Cindi Graves and Anne Leonard for bringing the Trinity spirit to the forefront at all of our parades. And to Dan Richards and Joe Shoman, and all of our Palatine families, who literally built floats from scratch for us!
Thank you… to every volunteer that went above and beyond by organizing parties, securing busses, finding more shows, and lacing together the fine details for every team this year.
Thank you... to the Trinity costume seamstresses that worked hours upon hours to bring smiles to all of our dancers, the costumes looked incredible on stage!
Thank you... to Mark Howard for creating and continuing the legacy and dedicating your mission to elevating kids by proving that anything is possible no matter who you are.
Thank you... to everyone here for believing in Trinity and the happiness your dancers bring to people all over. With 404 performances spanning over 300 miles in just under one month of time, I think we might have had our best and busiest season yet! Without all of your patience, positivity, and help throughout this season, it would not be possible.
It was wonderful to watch all the moments unfold through shared pictures and videos. This was my 4th year as the performance booking manager and to my knowledge, we broke our own record of how many shows could be done in one weekend alone with 243 the weekend of St. Patrick’s Day!
Let’s keep up the fun this spring and summer! Be sure to check your eyes peeled for all upcoming Spring and Summer programs being released soon.
Please enjoy this wrap up video, sing along, smile and reflect. If you’re wondering, yes we are already planning for next year!
I wanted to share some of the comments & compliments that were sent to me over the last two weeks. Your dancers made this possible, and all of your communities greatly appreciate it ❤️
Great season everyone! Love,
Your support for Our Place means teens and adults with developmental disabilities take their place in the world as fully contributing citizens. They keep growing, learning, and joining in community activities. You made something amazing happen.

I want to send you a HUGE thank you!!! The residents and myself were very impressed with all the talented dancers! I cannot express in words how much the performance means to the residents. They laughed, clapped, smiled, moved to the music and some had tears!! The dancers were able to bring down 30 residents, which is a large turnout.
On behalf of all of us here at Goodwill, we would like to thank you for such a wonderful performance! Our participants were so excited and they all had smiles on their faces the rest of the day. All of your dancers were so sweet and great with our participants while mingling after the show. Thank you so much for volunteering your time here at our center. We hope you will come back next year!

I want to thank you, the troop of dancers and their parents for coming to our Memory Cafe. To provide them with a performance from Trinity was truly something special. There was much anticipation and I heard several times "Are there really going to be Trinity Irish Dancers today?" Memory Cafe
