The Seattle Irish Dance Company was created out of the realization that there were few professional performance options for elite Irish Dancers in the West. It was founded in order to bring the art form of Irish dance to a wider and more contemporary audience, and to create choreography that is technically demanding for the dancers as well as relevant, exciting and accessible to a wide variety of audiences.
There is something about Irish dance that sticks with people; audiences and dancers alike, and the Seattle Irish Dance Company has been overjoyed by the positive response we’ve thus far received. We look forward to the future when we can bring our show to more audiences, work with young dancers in a variety of programs and expand our company to something we can do full time. We hope The Seattle Irish Dance Company will show people that Riverdance is just the beginning for Irish Dance performance, we hope to one day be able to provide young dancers in the Northwest and beyond a way to keep dancing past their high school years.
