In commemoration of its 10th Anniversary Season, Darrah Carr Dance brings ModERIN, its signature blend of traditional Irish step and contemporary modern dance, to the Irish Arts Center stage. Renowned for seamlessly integrating Irish dance within contemporary choreography, the company blends Irish music, step dance footwork, and spatial patterns to create high energy, rhythmically based work that is performed by a cast of champion Irish step dancers. Featuring a mix of new works and company favorites, additional program highlights include salon style discussions with choreographer Darrah Carr, a specially priced Family Show (1 hour), and a ModERIN Masterclass. Don't miss the Opening Night Champagne Reception on Thursday, October 23rd! Show your support for Darrah Carr Dance by purchasing a $50.00 VIP ticket which ensures the best seats in the house and a celebratory champagne toast after the show with the full company! This project is made possible in part with public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, and from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Both grant programs are administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
