Cèilidhs are traditional Celtic social events. The Scottish spell it Cèilidh, and the Irish spell it as Cèili.

In translation it means "Social Visit", but in practical terms it involves dancing and celtic music.

Due a large number of Irish and Scottish colonial settlers in Australia, a lot of the Cèilidh dances were adopted as "Australian Bush Dances".

The JarrahCelts host Cèilidhs where they teach the audience to set dance. Here are a few pictures of our Cèilidhs...

Here is video of Chris teaching folks how to dance the "Gay Gordons" at a Scottish Ceilidh. Most of the people at these Australian held Scottish events have little to no knowledge of the dance steps, but that is OK... its all part of the fun.
