Shannonside Ceili Dancers

We are an adult Ceili dance group in Rochester, NY.  We rehearse on Monday evenings from September to May, and perform for nursing homes, charity organizations, and local events including the Rochester Irish Festival.  

The Shannonside Ceili Dancers were originally formed by mothers of girls taking Irish step dancing lessons.  Rather than sit in the hallway and wait for the classes to end, they decided to take up dancing themselves.  30 years later several of the original members are still dancing.   

Today we're not just dance moms!  We welcome men and women, new and experienced dancers, those of Irish birth/descent and those who just love the music and culture.  Don't know the steps?  Come join and we'll teach you!

Contact us through our web site for info or to book us for a performance.
