Auditions are open year-round!
We are looking for versatile dancers who aspire to realize their potential as great part-time performing artists. We hope to work with passionate individuals who elevate the people around them. Experience with other dance forms, a background in theater, leadership, humor and a strong sense of commitment, are experiences and qualities that matter far more to us than competitive achievements.
That said, many of our company members only have competitive Irish dance experience. Some struggled to make it onto regional podiums and some have won world titles. In short, we are looking for a diverse group of people with strong character and passion. Most importantly, we’re looking for individuals who value relationships with depth; who want to use their talents for the betterment of others; who share in the Company’s vision to celebrate Irish dance through a performing arts lens.
If you want to create and perform art with meaning, do minimal touring, stay in top dancing shape and make lifelong friends … all while making school or your full time job a priority, you may be interested in the Trinity Irish Dance Company! If you’ve auditioned in the past, please do not hesitate to do so again!
Dancers age 17-30: We are looking to cast male and female dancers of high school senior, college or post-college age for a 2018 summer tour of Japan and beyond, including 2018 spring/fall/winter weekend dates.
Dancers age 14-17: We would like to meet and start dialogues with high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors along with their parents about potentially attending college in Chicago or Milwaukee to join the TIDC mission.
WHAT IS TIDC?
The Chicago/Milwaukee based Trinity Irish Dance Company emerged in the early 90’s to great critical acclaim. Our work has been celebrated in distinguished performing arts venues, from the Chicago Theater and Washington’s Kennedy Center, to New York’s Joyce Theater and Tokyo’s Orchard Hall.
Not to be confused with the competitive school, Trinity Academy of Irish Dance, the Trinity Irish Dance Company is an independent, nonprofit professional repertory company that exists as a forum for dancers to explore the endless potential of Irish dance, connect with other passionate artists, utilize dance as their voice in greater social conversations, engage with communities around the world and create important new work. TIDC’s style is progressive, without losing touch with tradition and entertaining, while putting a premium on integrity. Alumni have come from a wide range of Irish dance schools across North America, Canada and Europe.
We recently signed with one of the world’s top artist management companies, Selby Artist Management out of New York City. A development that will be taking us to new heights!
