Our Story

Elyse Transon grew up Irish dancing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and started her professional dance career during her senior year at the University of Minnesota. As a company dancer, principal dancer, dance captain, choreographer, tour manager, and workshop teacher she has danced all across the United States as well as in Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Zambia, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Colombia and Canada. 

While home in between tours, Elyse found herself missing a community of dancers so in 2014 she formed the Milwaukee Irish Dance Company (MIDC), an inclusive adult performance company. MIDC eventually led her to team up with Mary Youssi, TCRG to open the Milwaukee Irish Dance Studio for students of all ages in 2019!
