Family Fun Ceili Dance
New Zealand’s only traditional Irish music festival presents a showcase concert featuring all the guest tutors for the festival.
More information soon.
Last years concert nearly sold out so be in quick to avoid disappointment.
A Ceili (traditional Irish dance) from the Irish (and Scots) Gaelic word for a gathering or a dance. If you want to come along and join in dances to some fantastic live Irish music, please join us. No previous dance experience necessary - we will teach dances. This is dancing at its best - fun, community activity and great exercise too. Come on your own (no partner necessary) or bring your friends and family. All welcome.
Sessions are a place for students and tutors to participate and are held Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings until late at various venues around central Nelson. There will be some singing sessions and easier graded sessions for intermediate students.
Sessions are open to the public and are free.
