What's A Celtic Ceilidh?

One of the most common questions we receive is “what is a ‘Ceilidh’, and how do I say it?”

A Ceilidh (pronouced kay-lee) is a Scottish or Irish social gathering, involving singing, dancing and story telling – like a party!

Our name is a reflection of our Scottish and Irish roots, and what we want to be for our dancers and dance families; a place for dancing, enjoyment, to make friends, and form many memories that will last a lifetime.

Our History

Celtic Ceilidh began as a Highland dance school, founded in 1995 by Dawn Moss. The dance school later expanded to include Irish, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Stretch and Hip Hop, allowing students to have a more well rounded dance training program.
