Celebrate dance and Irish culture during Culture Days this weekend when the Tara School of Irish Dancers will hold a performance and an introductory workshop on Irish dance.

Celebrate Culture Days and Come to the Ceili

Following performances by the dancers, the audience will be invited to join in some Ceili dancing

To celebrate Culture Days, BC, The Tara School of Irish Dancing invites you to “Come to the Ceili” on Friday, Sept. 26 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Willow Point Hall.

Following performances by the dancers, the audience will be invited to join in some Ceili dancing and then, perhaps, to join in a “mini” intro to Irish Dance session. Free and fun for the whole family, the glorious music and stirring dancing will warm your heart.  Everyone is welcome to join in the ceili dancing or simply sit back, relax and enjoy some light refreshments and experience the joy of the music and dance of Ireland.

Culture Days is a collaborative, Canada-wide volunteer movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.

The first annual Culture Days event swept across more than 700 Canadian cities and towns during the last weekend of September 2010, generating an extraordinary amount of enthusiasm in the process.

This year’s Culture Days weekend will take place on September 26-28. Once again, the event will feature free, hands-on, interactive activities that invite the public to participate “behind the scenes”—and to discover the world of artists, creators, historians, architects, curators, and designers at work in their community.
