Irish Dance

Saturday: St. Patrick's Day might be a month away, but you can get into the green spirit a wee bit early with the Rince na Chroi School of Irish Dance. Named for the Gaelic phrase for "dance of the heart," the company was founded by Milwaukee native Katie Stephens Spangler in 2003, and has grown to more than 150 dancers of all ages. Accompanied by the Two Tap Trio Dance Band, the troupe performs traditional dances from the Emerald Isle. (7 p.m. Sat., O'Shaughnessy Auditorium, 2004 Randolph Av., St. Paul, $15-$32, 651-690-6700 or oshag.stkate.edu.) SHEILA REGAN
