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.
