    The girls, teachers and Headmistress LOVED it and for many it was their first experience of a ceilidh (I’m sure it won’t be their last!) There was so much happiness and laughter! - 19 Apr 2020

We provide family barndances, school ceilidhs or events with a mix of children and adults. Our huge repertoire of dances can be adjusted to suit all ages or to incorporate themes e.g. our Pirate Ceilidh which we provided for the National Maritime Museum’s family festival.

We are experienced workshop leaders, fully DBS checked and create exciting sessions for all ages in ceilidh dancing, folk music and song. We’ve run ceilidh and music workshops for CBeebies, EFDSS and for a yearly project teaching traditional songs and dances across ten schools.

PTA-ceilidhs

We love PTA ceilidhs, school fundraisers or events for staff and parents and will make your school event as fun as possible! If you’ve not run a ceilidh before we can advise on the format of the evening and help maximize attendance.
