Ceili & Choreography
A ceili (kay-lee) dance is a traditional Irish dance involving groups (often called "teams") of dancers. A choreography dance also involves multiple dancers, but unlike a traditional ceili, it uses original choreography and music to tell a story. At Clarkson, our dancers learn ceili & choreography dances for competitions, performances and fun. Unlike many schools, we do not require students to audition for our award-winning ceili teams. Instead, we make every effort to include students from all levels who are interested, able and willing to commit to the practices, performances, workshops & competitions that build successful teams.
Adult Classes (Solo & Ceili)
Our adult class meets Monday nights from 7:30-8:30 pm at our main studio. This is a fun, relaxed class. Open to all experience levels, from former dancers who want to stay in shape, to new students who have always wanted to try Irish dance. Ages 18 & up. Tuition is $50/mo.
