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 are for our dance families; a place to celebrate dance, music, tradition, make friends and life-long memories.
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 and Stretch allowing students to have a more well rounded dance training program.
At Celtic Ceilidh, our qualified instructors foster a passion and appreciation of dance, while delivering an individualized program for students to discover their own potential.
We moved to our current studio in Fall 2012, located at the Argyll Center in South Edmonton (Argyll Road & Gateway Boulevard).
