FREE IRISH STEP-DANCING WORKSHOP AT VITERBO OPEN TO PUBLIC

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The world-famous Trinity Irish Dance Company will lead a free Irish step-dancing workshop at the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Dance Studio on Sunday, Nov. 5, at 2 p.m.

The originator of the Irish dance phenomena and at the cutting edge of performance, Trinity Irish Dance Company was the first ensemble to make the leap from competition to performance. Founded in 1990, Trinity Irish Dance Company is the world’s only nonprofit professional Irish dance company. Many of its dancers come from the prestigious Trinity Academy of Irish Dance, the Chicago/Milwaukee-based school that has seized an unprecedented number of gold medals for the U.S. at the World Championships of Irish Dance held annually in Ireland.

Trinity Irish Dance Company will perform at Viterbo to a sold-out crowd that same evening, as part of the Bright Star Season. The performance is sponsored by WXOW-TV 19 and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

There is no charge for the workshop, which is open to the public, but reservations are required by calling 796-3741.
