Ceili Dance Friday Night.
Ceili Dance: a ceili (kay-lee) is a traditional Irish gathering for fun, fellowship, and laughs (or craic as the Irish might say). Traditional ceili dances were enjoyed at house parties and corner road gatherings in the rural countrysides. Decades later, they are still danced in Ireland.
Come join us Friday night, May 26 7-8:30 pm. for a Ceili. Our caller, Deborah Hyland makes it very easy, plus there are people there who have danced before. We love beginners!!
Come learn to play a bodhrán. This is for the wee and grown folk alike. Sessions will be held in the Katy Depot on Saturday and Sunday. Check the schedule for times.

What is the Irish Language? Come and have a bit of craic as we teach you to speak Irish in 30 minutes or less. OK, just a few words, but you are sure to have a good time.
