After founding the Trinity Academy of Irish Dance in 1982, Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard’s competitive dancers soon began to win unprecedented world team titles for the United States at the World Championships of Irish Dance. Not content to simply win trophies, Howard ultimately began to venture outside the framework of ethnicity, expanding Trinity’s range and repertoire in a host of imaginative new directions. This led to the founding of the nonprofit TIDC which began providing a unique forum for creativity that ultimately attracted dancers from schools around the world.  By using Irish dance as an instrument and a metaphor, TIDC crossed both cultural and disciplinary boundaries in important ways. Through the years, TIDC has collaborated with many noted contemporary choreographers which have led them to an increased vocabulary of movement. TIDC holds a unique place in the dance world, offering both a highly skilled presentation of traditional Irish step dance and a brilliantly engaging interpretation of contemporary world vision.  For tickets and info go to: https://appellcenter.org/show/trinity-irish-dance-company
