Dont' Miss the Irish Dance!

1pm - 1:45pm, Century Foyer

Come join the festival céilí - an Irish social gathering with music, merriment, and most importantly, dance! No skill necessary for this session so why not learn a simple dance or two with step-by-step instructions from a “caller”, accompanied by a rollicking house band. Think of it as a square dance, but even happier, if that’s possible. Sláinte (to your health)!
