Irish Dance Workshop at Crooked Tree Arts Center

Anyone with dancing or even non dancing feet are invited to participate in the Irish Social Dance workshop Thursday, March 13 from 6-9 p.m.

Irish Social "ceili" Dance is a fun social dance, different than the elaborate step dancing that is most commonly associated with Irish dancing. There are several fun types of group dancing that are considered ceili. A little like country line dancing, groups form different patterns and then follow a basic series of steps.

The Irish Social Dance workshop is great for individuals, couples and families looking to spend some fun quality time together.

"We are hoping that people really enjoy the Irish Social Dance, as we'd love to have a group develop at the Arts Center," said Valerie St. Pierre Smith, program director at Crooked Tree Arts Center. No formal dance training required, just the ability to count.

Longtime Irish ceili dancer, Rosemary Jackson, will lead the March 13 workshop.

"I have been doing Irish ceili dancing since my semester in Ireland in 1995," Jackson said. "I joined up with a social dance group in Grand Rapids and we met together weekly. I have missed dancing since my move to this area and would like to share the joy and my knowledge and have some fun. I have performed for festivals, helped to lead dances at various venues and participated in several weekend dance workshops."

The workshop teaching Irish social dance will take place March 13, from 6-9 p.m. at Crooked Tree Arts Center, and registration is available online at www.crookedtree.org or by calling 231.347.4337. Advance registration is strongly recommended.
