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 dancers, the participants of the 6 day summer school will learn the iconic choreography from the show. They will also 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. As part of the school the students will attend Riverdance at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin and a meet and greet with the cast back stage. The finale of each school will be a fully staged rehearsed performance of extracts of Riverdance featuring all the students for an invited audience of family and friends. While most of each day will be spent dancing, there will also be talks given by special guest speakers as well as field trips and evening sporting activities. Courses are available either as residential or non-residential and applications are being taken now.
