RINCE NA CHROI
Pronounced “rink-a na cree” and Gaelic for “dance of the heart,” Rince na Chroi was founded in 2003 by Katie Stephens Spangler, a world-class competitive dancer with 15 years of Irish dancing and teaching experience. Since opening, she has grown the school from 15 dancers to more than 200. They perform all over the Twin Cities and the Midwest at events such as the Irish Fair of Minnesota, Grand Old Day, Milwaukee Irish Fest, the Minnesota Zoo and the Landmark Center, with talented musicians such as the Two Tap Trio, the Wild Colonial Bhoys, We Banjo 3 and Gaelic Storm.
Their annual program hosted at The O’Shaughnessy at St. Kate’s draws thousands each year. For 14 years, ash Design + Marketing has been called to design the annual promotional poster and program, along with other marketing collateral and promo products to support the school’s growth throughout the year, such as post cards, social media images and tote bag giveaways.
