Accessible Céilí

Accessible Céilí

March 11, 2023 – 3:30-5:00pm

Button Factory Arts, 25 Regina St S, Waterloo, ON N2J 1R8, Canada


The IRL (Irish Real Life) Festival and Kaleidoscope Irish Dance Studio are pleased to host an accessible céilí, a social dance event designed specifically to accommodate dancers of all abilities.  We will use traditional Irish music, but with slower tempos, and traditional Irish dance steps, but with modifications to make the dances more accessible.  Our céilí caller is Marjorie Hopkins.  She has been teaching Irish dance for over a decade and specializes in inclusive and adaptive Irish dance.

This event is for families to dance together and share in the joy that is Irish dance.  We will also feature a short performance by Kaleidoscope Studio’s Rhythm n’ Reels adaptive Irish dancers.  Dance is for everybody and the IRL Festival extends this invitation to all who long to dance!
