Ceilis


Special Summer Event

Every summer our friends in the O’Neill-Malcom chapter of CCE
present a program of music and dance called MAD Week.
Part of it is a ceili with music by the faculty and students
which invites everyone to try another form of Irish dance.

     Appealing admission rates:
$10/MAD Wk students, $15/non-registrants, $20/family
Please Note: COVID precautions — vax and mask required

Our last monthly ceili was on Sunday, May 22, 2022
** Ceilis resume in Septermber 2022 **

Note: while it was the last ceili of the season.
our dance classes continue through the summer.

Much has changed since COVID arrived, so here are some important changes/info/reminders:

– Everyone must show proof of full vaccination plus booster(s) to enter. This proof only needs to be provided once — anyone who submitted this proof previously is covered.
Please be patient at the door while we process this added step. (Consider emailing a photo of your card to irishgwcc@aol.com in advance of the ceili to shorten lines at the door.

– Given the nature of set dancing, we are requiring masks be worn, except while eating/drinking. As unappealing as it is, dancing has us breathing even closer than just a conversation.

– There is a potluck supper during the first break, please bring a ‘ready to eat’ dish to share.

Prices are – $20/GWCC members, $25/non-members, 11 & under half price

It’s been a long, difficult road, we’re glad to be back and hopeful that conditions continue to improve. We hope many of you can join us !

When we had to cancel our monthly ceili we struggled to find a way to stay connected.

One 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
