Interesting Things: Feb SCMA ceili – lovely night

Last night’s SCMA ceili at the Sammons Center was great fun. Had another good crowd and made it through the Antrim Square, Cavan Reel Set, Bonfire Dance, Siege of Carrick, Fairy Reel, Balleyvourney Jig Set, Haymakers Jig and the Back to Back Hornpipe



Next month the ceili will be at the North Texas Irish Festival so come on out at 7pm for the ceili and 1pm for the dance workshop

Interesting Things: Feb SCMA ceili

The next SCMA ceili is coming up this Saturday at the Sammons Center.

Tell your friends, your friends friends, your siblings and office cohorts about the ceili. Drag those people out who you know would enjoy a night of jumping, sliding, bouncing fun with good music but insist on saying ‘I don’t know how.’ We’ll show you and there are plenty of people who can help pull and push you through the dances.

The theme for this ceili is ‘Less teaching, more dancing.’ We’re going to try just running through the more difficult aspects of a dance and depend on people to watch closely when it isn’t their turn and on the experienced group at large to help the new people if they run into trouble. If there are enough ‘ringers’ at the ceili that should result in more dancing throughout the night.

For the lesson period this month we’ll finish up the Cavan Reel and continue with the Antrim Square.

For the main ceili time we’re thinking of doing (in no particular order):

Antrim Square
Cavan Reel Set
Bonfire Dance
Siege of Carrick
Balleyvourney Jig Set
Haymakers Jig
Walls of Limerick
Back to Back Hornpipe
Aoife Three Step
Bridge of Athlone
