SARATOGA SPRINGS- The Trinity Irish Dance Company is slated to perform at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center for the first time at 8 p.m. on July 30.
The progressive dance company is known for blending together traditional Irish dance with contemporary American ideas. It was founded in 1990 by Emmy-award winning choreographer Mark Howard and led the way for productions like "Riverdance."
“Last year we created an immersive, Argentinian festival around Che Malambo’s performance that resulted in one of the most memorable programs of the season. Due to the overwhelming response from our audiences, we are expanding our program offerings with a continued focus on world music and dance ensembles,” said Elizabeth Sobol, SPAC’s president and CEO. “We are so excited to bring the aerial grace and awe-inspiring precision of the Trinity Irish Dance Company for a performance that is unlike anything that’s ever been seen on the SPAC stage.”
At 7:15 p.m. on July 30, shortly before the Trinity Irish Dance Company performs, 80 local children who have participated in SPAC's The Performance Project: Youth in Motion will perform a final performance.
Tickets for the amphitheater-only performance are $27, $37 and $57, and will be on sale to the public on Monday, March 26 at 10 a.m. at spac.org.
