A second performance at 4 pm has been added to accommodate demand for this lively show.

The Kerry Dance Troupe, including special guests Kevin Horton, Kimberly Gerard and Keara Osborne is comprised of dancers from Riverdance, Lord of the Dance, Magic of the Dance and local champion dancers. These 'ambassadors' of Irish dance work with Kerry Records on various aspects of Irish folk-dance traditions, incorporating old Irish dance styles into modern Irish dance styles. Through this process, the best of ethnic and modern Ireland is represented, exposing audiences to the beauty, value, passion, and uniqueness of the traditional Irish dance.
Three Stages: Inspire, Include, Instruct!
Three Stages at Folsom Lake College presents touring artists from around the world; partners with the best regional arts organizations, and supports productions by FLC students and faculty.
