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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
