Ceili introduction and Ceili night, Friday 16.08. 18:00/19:00

Friday night is ceili night!

Get your tickets here.

A ceili is a social night of group dances, music, and loads of fun. There is usually a ceili caller who will choose the dances and prompt the dancers as they are dancing. That way, everybody can join – even if you don’t know the dance.

We’re so lucky to have Åse Kristine Waglen as our ceili caller. If you want a crash course in ceili dancing before we start, there will be a ceili introduction first.

The ceili will take place on the 4th floor of Popsenteret.
Tickets for the ceili and the crash course will be available soon.

Teachers' concert, Saturday 17.08. 19:00

Get ready for some Saturday night magic
