BLACK IRISH is a contemporary hip-hop company that is choreographically focused on intricate movement invention, spatial fulfillment, energy, and pop culture. "Black Irish" has been theorized to be the descent of both Spanish and Irish ancestry.
While that is the origin for the company, BLACK IRISH is one that strives in supporting all people in their efforts to dance. Seeing both Black and Irish, two strong words utilized in describing the most notable example in American history for hatred, unified as a singular black shamrock reflects that universal acceptance of coming together through the love of dance, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion. Our mission is to expose contemporary dance in an ever evolving world of dance and promote contemporary movement as it continues to inspire the public.
We hope to elevate the ideals of all viewers and dreamers of what people think dance is, should be, and can be, if you aspire for greatness and scale. Through the showcase of our movement, we hope to allow dancers, dancer enthusiasts, and first-time viewers a window into the wonderful world of movement.
