This Is Trinity: The Dawn

[1998]: “The Dawn”, choreographed by Mark Howard and Richard Griffin, wins America’s first senior world team title, leaving a lasting legacy. 

Unparalleled for its time, “The Dawn” ushered in a new level of choreographic complexity that is still emulated and celebrated today.  This iconic winning team was comprised of a “who’s who” in Trinity history: made up of current Trinity teachers and parents as well as founding members of the professional nonprofit Trinity Irish Dance Company. 




In celebration of our Founder Mark Howard’s 40th year as a pioneering choreographer / dance educator, we are sharing key moments from Howard’s career. A career that has consistently redefined the industry and continues to have a worldwide impact. 

Trinity continues to realize our Founder's vision to provide a space for young people to grow as dancers, friends, leaders, and most importantly, as teammates.
