Here are some dances to practice
Erin Ealy founded the dance division of Conradh na Gaeilge in LA. The name Céilí means together and it suggests a gathering in which dancing takes place. It is also a specific type of traditional Gaelic dancing that involves people dancing in groups for social enjoyment.
The word Rua usually means red-haired but it also has the meaning 'wild.' A Céilí Rua then is a wild get-together for dancing. It stresses the fun element of the activity.
As the Céilí Rua began at The Wilde Thistle Café in Culver City, a café that honored Oscar Wilde, the name Céilí Rua was born.
Céilí Rua works with the local community presenting workshops at libraries, community centers, schools, universities etc. all over Los Angeles.
The pictures here are of a workshop for The Ford Theater. We aim to spread the joy of the culture to all who wish to try it out.
Gaelic traditional dancing encompasses many styles. It is the aim of Céilí Rua to teach students many different styles:
Step soft & hard shoe dancing
Set (low-impact) dancing
Sean-nós (old style)
As well as dances from Scotland & the Isle of Man
