THIRD FRIDAY CEILIS ONLY

Events

The Center will be presenting Ceilis on the third Friday of the month only. Enjoy Irish social dancing in a relaxed atmosphere with live music and dance lessons.
Admission is $6.00 with children under 12 Free (2 with each paid admission) Ceilis start at 7:00 pm. 

Starting with the Third Friday Ceili in August we will be having a "Beginners/Orientation session" starting at 6:30 and going until 7:15 when the Ceili will officially start. We will be including the basic steps, and the basic movements, "such as round the house", "advance and retire" and "Wheels, stars and hands across", and pertinent terminology during the Orientation session. Our hope is to give new folk a chance to get comfortable with the dancing, and then have to do much less instruction during the Ceili itself. In turn we hope to be able to increase the number of dances we can do during the Ceili. All, including experienced dancers, first-timers and everyone in between, are welcome at the Orientation sessions.

Ceili dance workshops at the Center are on the third Saturday of most months from 1:00-3:00 PM. These are two hour dance intensive for beginning and advanced dancers. Beginners will focus on basic footwork and simpler Ceili dances (Fairy Reel, Siege of Ennis, etc). Advanced dancers will learn more difficult figure dances (Cross Reel, Trip To The Cottage, etc).
