Teelin Irish Dance Company Returns to the Carroll Arts Center
Following a sold-out show last year, The Carroll County Arts Council is thrilled to welcome back the acclaimed Teelin Irish Dance Company for live performances on Saturday, March 16 at 3 pm & 7 pm.
The Teelin Irish Dance Company is known for their performances that accentuate the energy of Irish dance with envelope-pushing choreography. From the graceful beauty of jigs and reels, to the thundering beat of percussive dance, a performance by this company leaves audience members at the edge of their seats and wishing for more! The show fuses traditional and contemporary Irish dance and music in an exciting new way.
Director Maureen Gately has extensive training in several dance styles, which enhance her mastery of traditional Irish step dance. Maureen’s experience as a professional dance performer has inspired her to explore creative choreography, thereby eliciting in her dancers a passion for performing. This innovative style also won her the 2009 Individual Artist Award for Dance Choreography presented by the Maryland State Arts Council.
The group has performed at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage in DC, Turning Stone Resort and Casino in New York, the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore and on the main stage of the Maryland Irish Festival. They have also appeared by Gaelic Storm (from the hit movie “Titanic”, with Eileen Ivers (fiddler from Riverdance) and with Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble.
These performances are sponsored by Manchester Family Medicine.
