The NY Irish Dance Company's goal is to produce and perform a new Irish dancing repertory that would reimagine the principles of classical Irish dancing technique. Under the leadership of Irish Dance Master in Chief Maureen Collins-Novaco & Mary Lynn Collins-Callanan, the Company remains dedicated to their vision as it pursues two primary objectives:

  1. to preserve the Irish dancing techniques, dance aesthetic, and standards of excellence created and established by its founders; and
  2. to develop new work that draws on the creative talents of contemporary choreographers and composers, and speaks to the time in which it is made.

This mission is accompanied by a commitment to expand the Company's audience and make Irish dancing accessible to the widest possible public through touring, education programs, the creative use of media, and other outreach efforts.
