Ceilis


We had to CANCEL our November Ceili.
Next up — our New Year’s Day Ceili

Ceilis are social dance events featuring traditional Irish music and dances.
All are welcome–if you don’t dance, come and enjoy the live music.

Dances cover a range of skill levels, but experienced dancers will help you to learn. You are encouraged to give it a try.

Please also consider joining our classes on Thursday evenings to improve your dancing and have fun with friends. Instructor Ann Marie Breheny will include our Set of the Month in preparation for the ceilis – a much better way to learn the dances because class times are long enough to really explain details and practice the figures several times.

Two important notes!

  1. We are currently continuing to require proof of vaccination & masks at all GWCC events.
  2. We are observing the rules at the Lyceum that prohibit alcohol consumption and smoking.


We have a potluck supper during the first break. Please bring a ‘ready to eat’ dish to share.

Prices are – $15/GWCC members, $20/non-members, 11 & under half price, uis freender 11

When we had to cancel our monthly ceils in 2020 and 2021,
we struggled to find a way to stay connected.

Our response was to go online with our Virtual Ceili’ Concert Series
a series of live-streamed concerts featuring local musicians.

You can still watch any of these Virtual Ceilis at our YouTube channel – YouTube
