Bluegrass Ceili Academy: Getting ready to take the stage!

Bluegrass Ceili Academy ClassesWe’re a full month into our very first year of Bluegrass Ceili Academy classes and time really does fly when you’re having fun.

Our children’s class is full of young dancers getting their first taste of Irish dance.  Some have danced before, some had never taken a dance class until they walked in our studio doors.  All of them are having a great time!

We’re excited that our dancers, ages five to 10, are learning… AND getting ready for their first performance.  Bluegrass Ceili Academy will be joining the Kiddie Kapers and Company Dance Program for their winter recital on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 11 a.m.

Bluegrass Ceili Academy performance teesOne thing we’re super excited about is getting to put together our very first performance costumes.  We’re keeping it simple, but also a bit blingy!  Here’s a sneak peek of what our dancers will be wearing on stage this December.

What about the adults?

We have a thriving group of adult dancers and you’re welcome to join us for a free class to see if Irish dance is for you.

Want something a little less formal?  Every month Bluegrass Ceili Academy teaches a free Irish dance class at the Spiders Well at McCarthy’s Irish Bar in downtown Lexington. Our next class is on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 7 – 8:30 p.m. Stop by, grab a pint, dance a few steps and give it a try.
