Siamsa ceilis are evenings of traditional Irish social dance. Great fun for all - novices and experienced dancers, young and old alike. And if you don’t feel like stepping it out, enjoy a glass from the bar, listen to the music and watch the fun on the floor!

A short instructional session is provided at the start of each Ceili to help welcome new dancers.

In winter weather, please bring shoes to help us keep the dance floor dry and safe.

Music by the Siamsa Montréal Ceili Band
with caller Bill White to guide you through a varied program of traditional dances, from easy “come-all-ye” circle dances to more challenging “sets” (quadrilles), with international favourites such as the Gay Gordons and of course a couple of waltzes. Bill is often assisted by callers Elspeth McMurray or Yaëlle Azoulay.

Guest performers
Half-time performances by local artists and groups are a frequent and popular feature of the ceilis. On April 29 our guests will be exciting Basque trio Sasi Ardiak.

We rely on a strong team of volunteers to help keep the ceilis running smoothly. If you would like to lend a hand, please contact info@siamsa.org.
