An extraordinary journey has come full circle!
Trinity Irish Dance Company has officially been hired by the Irish Dance Commission to perform at next months World Irish Dancing Championships. This is extraordinary for so many reasons.
From the mid 80’s through the late 90’s, our founder choreographed and coached his way to setting world records for the U.S. that will never be broken in our lifetime. His creations didn’t merely help the school win trophies. His dances redefined what was possible inside competitive Irish Dance.
That early competitive success started Mark’s evolution to becoming the Artistic Director of the professional touring company, Trinity Irish Dance Company. He made a conscious choice to take the difficult path of an artist in a nonprofit organization as opposed to a commercial show. His innovative spirit continues to push boundaries in the performing arts where his work makes a positive difference on stage and in communities around the world.
Today, more than thirty years since Mark began making in roads for the U.S. in world competition, his company and his choreography have risen to a level where they are being hired to entertain the best dancers in the world. TIDC is the first professional dance company of any kind to ever perform a full concert at the World Irish Dance Championships.
Congratulations to Mark and TIDC’s extraordinary dancers. We could not be more proud!
