Trinity Irish Dance Company
Artistic Director Mark Howard
Saturday, October 19, 8 pm
Mahalia Jackson Theater

Since its founding in 1990, Chicago’s Trinity Irish Dance Company has been hailed as the birthplace of the progressive Irish dance movement, blending the virtuosity and rapid-fire rhythms of traditional Irish dance with contemporary American innovations that paved the way for commercial productions like Riverdance. Continuing to push boundaries and selling out performances around the world, this awe-inspiring company of champion dancers and musicians debuts its new show that dazzles and entertains with percussive power, lightning-fast agility and aerial grace that is simply irresistible and the “real deal.”
Chicago Tribune

“Trinity cast a spell on the audience, they had every man, woman and child on their feet!”

Saturday, April 18, 8 pm
Mahalia Jacksion Theatre

For the “the funniest night you will ever have at the ballet,” (The Sunday Times, UK) don’t miss the long-awaited return of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo in a hilarious new program. Affectionately called The Trocks, this lovable all-male ballet company performs delightful parodies of great ballet classics from Swan Lake, Giselle and The Dying Swan to the dances of George Balanchine and Martha Graham. This company of technically proficient male ballerinas on pointe and in tutus is a worldwide dance phenomenon and “one of the great comic creations of the American stage.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Their technique is superb, their timing faultless and their regard for the traditions of classical ballet beyond reproach.”
