The Timoney School of Irish Dance, based in Glenside, will offer instruction in adult beginner ceili dancing this fall.
Named for the Irish word for traditional music and dance socials (which in turn derives from the Old Irish word for “visit”), ceili dance is a type of folk dance popular for centuries in Ireland and Scotland, and among immigrant communities of Gaelic heritage. Dancers perform choreographed moves in lines or reels to traditional music, often relying heavily on leg and foot movements while keeping the arms more rigid.
The first class will take place on Tuesday, Sept.17 at 6:30 p.m. at the Glenside Knights of Columbus hall, located at 235 Limekiln Pike in Glenside.
Classes are $6 per person, per session.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
