English ceilidh ("kay-lee") dances, which you can call barn dances if you
can't pronounce ceilidh, are raucous social dances similar to those found at
pubs throughout England. Different in both style and music from both
Scottish and Irish ceilidhs, English ceilidhs combine traditional English
music performed by amplified ensembles with dances that are derived from but
(usually) simpler English country dances. These are entry-level dances,
extremely welcoming to groups of first-timers, children old enough to dance
apart from their parents, and even morris dancers. Our English ceilidh
dances are held occasionally, usually at Humanist Hall in Oakland.
