Join the movement!
Casting now for a summer of creation, 2023 winter/spring USA tour, 2023 summer tour of Japan, and beyond!
Our model allows you to balance being a high-profile performing artist with a full-time job or being a full-time student. A second model is in the works that would involve a more extended touring schedule.
Our current company members range in age from 18 to 33, emanating from Ireland, Mexico, and throughout North America.
Who we are looking for:
We are looking for individuals who:
- Are committed artists and athletes who demonstrate humility, empathy, and a deep appreciation for the art form and its possibilities
- Want to pursue their love of Irish dance through a unique, performing arts lens
- Are driven to change the dialogue within Irish dance – to celebrate its traditions, explore its possibilities in a meaningful way, to celebrate work that presents males and females on equal footing
- Want to be a part of our mission to save Irish dance from the commercialized box it is stuck in
- Go out of their way to reach out to connect and uplift everyone around them
- are versatile dancers who aspire to realize their potential as great part-time performing artists
Dancers age 18+: We are looking to cast male and female dancers of high school senior, college or post-college age for a 2022 summer tour of Japan, a 2022/2023 US season featuring weekend touring in major cities, and beyond.
Dancers age 14-17: We would like to meet and start dialogues with high school-age dancers along with their parents about potentially attending college in Chicago or Milwaukee to join TIDC’s mission.
