The ceilidh dance Virginia Reel is one of Ceilidh Tree’s all time favourites. We usually include it early on in a set as it’s so quick to teach and also helps us start with a bit of a bang. The dramatic formation with two long lines and that crucial final gallop in the Virginia Reel
Disco / DJ Playlists
We’ll create your perfect playlist in advance and adjust it on the night to get the very best response from guests. You have complete control over the tracks we play or you can leave it to us if you prefer.
Alternatively you can supply a list of genres / eras / artists etc. We’re also happy to take requests from guests on the night too.
Disco Lighting for Event
Our lighting rig includes laser, strobe, glitter ball etc. which creates a perfect contrast with the ceilidh.
The ceilidh is brightly lit (so dancers can see what they’re doing!) and we turn off the venue lights and our disco lights on creating extra momentum between the sections.
For larger events we can also supply a DJ booth with LED starcloth and larger rigs.
Event Timing Systems
The ceilidh and disco use the same sound system, maximizing space. We’d normally do 2 x 1 hour ceilidh sets then straight to a 1 to 2 hour disco.
We love ending with a big dance like “Strip The Willow” and whilst guests are still on the floor, switch straight to the DJ creating a nice flow between the sections.
There’s flexibility with timings – if guests are “ceilidh’d out” we’ll move on to the disco earlier or extend the ceilidh if it’s swinging!
