How to get everyone dancing at your wedding..

….. have a ceili!

A ceili is great fun and will involved everyone from 6 year old to 96, so it’s very likely that your dance floor will be filled at your wedding, with dancers or laughing onlookers or guests trying to video the most hilarious bits. The word ‘ceili’ means a sociable gathering with music and dancing, which is exactly what everyone wants at their wedding and other occasions.

Most people won’t know the steps, and that’s ok. Our callers have years of experience of quickly teaching the steps. Ceili dancing is by far the most fun and relaxed way for your guests to mingle and get to know each other, with very little effort. And then there are the videos to look at the next day!
