The Bessie Award-nominated company Darrah Carr Dance brings a bold new twist to conventional Irish dance. Their acclaimed performances draw from Irish music, step dance footwork and spatial patterns to create high-energy, rhythmically based work that is accessible to a broad audience. The company is comprised of championship Irish dancers including Trent Kowalik, Tony Award winner and the original star of Broadway's Billy Elliot and Timothy Kochka, two-time winner of the World Irish Dancing Championships and former member of Riverdance. Artistic Director Darrah Carr was named one of the "Top 100 Irish Americans of the Year" by Irish America Magazine and was awarded the Irish Heritage Award from the New York City Comptroller Office in recognition of her contribution to the cultural life of New York's Irish community.
Just in time for the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, their new show, Ceilidh, or “house party”, combines uplifting live Celtic music with energized dance, songs, and storytelling all in the spirit of the warmth and friendship of an Irish house party!
