A performance by the award-winning Belisama Irish Dancers, followed by a community workshop and Ceili dance party.
Belisama Dance presents a community Irish Dance workshop for St. Patrick’s Day weekend. This family event is open to all ages, and will begin with a thirty-minute performance by the award-winning Belisama Irish Dancers, followed by a community workshop and Ceili dance party with attendees, on Saturday, March 15th, from 4-6pm. What better way to celebrate St. Paddy than to discover the traditional fun and energy of Irish dancing? Give it a try, and learn a few new steps in a relaxed atmosphere. Ceili dancing is a social dance from Ireland—enjoy the basics and have a rollicking good time. Be taught by the experts! Five Belisama dancers recently attended the North American CRN Irish Dance Championships in February 2014. Maria Jones received her second National Championship title, placing first in the under-18 division and winning the Craobh Grad reel, slip jig, single jig, and hornpipe competitions; Shannon Kossmann placed second under-16; and Darcy Turin third for Mean Grad level three award and solo dances. Kate Schiliro also placed well in level two and three solo dances. Please bring a water bottle, and wear socks or dance shoes only; street shoes are not allowed in the studio.
