The Lincoln Irish Dancer’s (LID) 20th Annual Ceili (Irish social dance) will be Sunday, March 11, 2018,  6:30-9pm at the Auld Rec Center in the heart of Lincoln in Antelope Park.  To celebrate our 20th anniversary of providing traditional Irish dance lessons and performance shows in Nebraska, the Ceili (Kay-lee) will be better than ever!

Ceili in the Irish language simply means gathering or party – when villagers would get together in a home or pub to play music and dance. In Ireland they will take an intermission with tea and scones.  We serve an assortment of baked goods such as cookies, soda bread, brownies, cupcakes, etc.

We have been told by past dance callers who were from Ireland  that our Ceili dance reminds them of the authentic Ceilis that they attended when they were growing up.  We are proud to carry on the tradition of Ireland’s public social dance, the Ceili to celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day season.
