The Edinburg Dance Theatre (also known as EDT) was founded in 2009 and is the non-profit organization and performance company of Dancentre of Edinburg, the dance school based in Texas that aims to give all rising dancing stars the support, training and opportunity to become the best dancers they can be; from harnessing their movements to pop and lock with Hip-Hop beats, to bend and poise with elegance in ballet, or to bring in a bluesy rhythm with Jazz dancing. Annually the Edinburg Dance Theatre produces startling, magical productions of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ and ‘Nutcracker’, as well as giving a Spring performance that features a Young Choreographer’s Workshop. This Spring, that performance will be ‘A Touch of Irish & Other Works’. It is a collaborative, celebratory piece that twines movement, music and costumes from the rich heritage of Celtic and Irish dancing, from the rapid paced and striking Riverdance to the tapping beats and fast feet of Sean-nós Dancing. Directing the show will be Yvette Iannell and Yvonne Guajardo, who both have strong affiliations and pride in Edinburg Dance Theatre. It will be a brilliant show of dancing, talent and joy, so secure your tickets without delay for 03/05/2023 at the McAllen Performing Arts Center.
