hoedown ceilidhs

Our Hoedown / barn dance ceilidhs are a hoot! Fiddle and banjo play toe-tapping American tunes and our caller ensures a rootin’-tootin’ good time. Gingham optional!

bollywood-ceilidhs

The fusion of Bollywood and ceilidh works surprisingly well and we’re lucky to collaborate with some ace Bollywood instructors. We start with Celtic dances and ramp up to Bollywood and Banghra to finish – it’s a heady mix!
