Riverdance-Trinity College Dublin International Summer School

Riverdance has joined forces with Ireland’s leading university, Trinity College Dublin to launch The Riverdance - Trinity College International Summer School
Taught by the Riverdance professional, the students will be immersed in Riverdance in its hometown of Dublin and they will take part fully in an exciting schedule of classes and activities. They will: • Learn the iconic Riverdance choreography from the show, • Train in all aspects of being a professional dancer from nutrition to fitness and general personal management so as to be prepared for a working life as a performer. • Attend a performance of Riverdance at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin with a meet and greet with the cast backstage. • Gain insight into how to choreograph new dance numbers and what it takes to put a live performance on stage. On completion of the school students will have gained a wealth of knowledge about the industry. • Take part in a fully staged rehearsed performance of extracts from Riverdance featuring all the students. This is the finale of each week where the students can showcase their work and perform to an audience of their families and friends.
