Children, parents and teachers meet life long friends through childhood activities. This couldn’t be any truer than with Trinity. Our school community truly is one huge extended family. Many of our teachers grew up together, learning steps in Trinity classes. They have remained close friends, rooming together and serving as each others bridesmaids. Trinity teachers, staff members, volunteers and dancers stick together, creating formidable friendships that often last long beyond our direct years with the organization.
"Having danced for more than ten years, I was lucky enough to meet a variety of individuals. Though we came from different backgrounds, we learned the same values of discipline, hard work and persistence through our shared Irish dance experience. I believe this is why so many of my peers at Trinity achieved such personal success after their Irish dancing days were over. I have friends in the medical, engineering, hospitality and legal fields amongst many others, all of whom are defined by the values we learned at the Academy. Those same values now help us excel in areas of our lives as non-dancers. Irish dancing, especially at Trinity, helps define the person you one day become. My friends and peers are just a few, but perfect examples of this."

"While I enjoyed the competition aspect of Irish dance, Trinity blessed me with indescribable performance opportunities. I never expected to have the opportunity to travel the world with my best friends and perform in front of thousands of people. These are the moments I will remember forever."
