“Failte” (“Welcome”) from the Lincoln Irish Dancers! Our mission is “to heighten awareness and appreciation of traditional Irish dance, and to celebrate Irish culture” here in Lincoln, Nebraska and surrounding areas. Our group began in March of 1997. We now offer a variety of activities such as holding Irish social dance classes from fall through spring in 5-week sessions; performing locally and regionally throughout the year; hosting a public ceili and workshops; facilitating periodic trips, e.g., to Ireland; and a number of member-only social events.
This Monday Áirc Damhsa & Creative Ireland launch Céilí in the Kitchen for Cruinniú na nÓg, Ireland’s national day of creativity for young people. We’re calling you all to have your own ceilí in the kitchen on June 13th. Over the next 4 Mondays we’ll share a series of videos to help you prepare for your own ceili. There will be
Song with Cathy Jordan
Story telling with Mikel Murfi
Music with Thomas Johnson
Dance with Edwina Guckian
The children at Áirc Damhsa will also be sharing daily videos showing what they’re planning for June 13th.
