A ceili ("kay-lee") is a traditional Irish gathering for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or "craic," as the Irish might say.) Traditional ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and corner road gatherings in the rural countrysides and are still danced in Ireland. The bonfire, haymaker's jig, Siege of Ennis, fairy reel and other dances are very easy to learn. These traditional country folk dances have a follow-the-leader pattern that new dancers can learn on their first attempt -- so come and join us for an evening of fun!
