Since set dancing won’t be happening for a quite a while, we’re going online, hosting a ‘Virtual Ceili’ Concert Series as a way to stay in touch. We’ve planned a series of live-streamed concerts to take place during what would be the last hour of our monthly ceili. Look for GWCC online on Facebook and YouTube

The Series kicks off with tunes from a favorite duo — Lilt (Tina Eck & Keith Carr) on September 27; next up on October 25 will be more local faves, Crystal Bailey & Patrick Cavanagh.

Children Dancing at the Crossroads (1835)

All our dances take place on the beautiful hardwood floor at the Cherry Hill Ballroom in College Park, MD, unless otherwise noted. A review of a featured Irish set dance takes place one hour before each dance (ie 3-4pm), except at the New Year’s Day Ceili.

Admission: $15 for GWCC members; $20 for nonmembers $8 for Students 11-20; Kids under 11 free (unless otherwise noted)

For information call (301) 512-4480 or (301) 649-6410 or email: info@gwcc-online.org
