The mission of Lincoln Irish Dancers is:
“To heighten awareness and appreciation of traditional Irish dance, and to celebrate Irish culture.”
Our weekly classes in Irish social dance (ceili) include information on how the dances came to be and be named as they are. The class instructor makes every effort to include appropriate cultural information.
Lincoln Irish Dancers (LID) publishes a listserv to keep its members and others who are interested in Irish culture apprised of upcoming public events sponsored by LID or where LID is participating in a public event. If you would like to receive this periodic listserv Bulletin contact
