Since its inception 35 years ago, the Trinity Irish Dancers have grown from a dozen students practicing in a church basement to the largest and most recognized Irish dance school in the world, earning 17 gold medals and over 35 titles at the World Irish Dance Championships and appearances in numerous Hollywood films and national television programs. Enjoy as young dancers leap onto the Kids in the Rotunda stage showcasing their incredible Irish soft shoe set to heart thumping reels.
Extra fun: Join us in the Promenade Terrace at 10:15 AM and 11:45 AM for free half-hour dance lessons with instructors from Trinity Irish Dance! PLUS stop by the Central Library’s Children’s Room from 9 AM – 1 PM for free art activities, special book displays and more, all inspired by the day’s Kids in the Rotunda performance.
Lullaby Project Diaper Drive: For all parents, diapers are essential, and yet thousands of local parents are struggling to meet that basic need. That’s why Overture Center’s Lullaby Project is collecting diapers for Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, southwestern Wisconsin’s largest hunger-relief organization which supports our project partner. Bring in unopened diapers to Kids in the Rotunda during the month of March and we will deliver them to Second Harvest. Thank you for participating in our diaper drive! Together, we can help give all families a happy start!
