The One-of-a-Kind Trinity Irish Dance Company brings progressive Irish Dance to the Majestic tonight

The Trinity Irish Dance Company will be taking the stage at the Gettysburg Majestic Theater this evening at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets, which run from $36 to $46, are available at the theater’s website.

Associate Director, choreographer, and dancer said the troop is in the middle of its seasonal tour which will end with a three-week run in Japan.

“We kicked off in Portland, Oregon at the White Bird theater in February where we had 4 sold-out performances as part of the theater’s 25th anniversary,” said Hoy.

The team has distinguished itself as the only Irish dance company in the performing arts arena and over the course of three decades has continued to host progressive performances.

Hoy described Irish dance as a performance that’s really loved by both 8-year-olds and 80-year-olds. “There’s a little bit of something for everyone in this performance,” she said.

Hoy said the show included a live band that plays for the dancers and also perform their own work.

Hoy expressed pride in Trinity Irish Dances’ ability to maintain the integrity of Irish Dance while incorporating threads of female empowerment and inclusivity.

The company has dancers representing three different countries and 12 different states and is looking to keep expanding. “We bring all of these unique personalities together and it’s really inside of our choreography. It’s the personalities that are put up front. So it’s important that we gather a unique group of people,” she said.

“Dancing skills are obviously very important, but it’s not important to us what competitive titles they won or didn’t win. It’s important to us what kind of leader they’re going to be, how they connect with their communities”

“Women bring the thunder,” said Hoy, saying the company is primarily female. “We always have been; but it’s not just in the numbers, but also in the casting and the choreography. That we really put the women up front and we celebrate the strength of women.”

Experience a performance of “everything you expect, but nothing you’d imagine” tonight at the Majestic Theater.
