2023 Pre-Chieftain’s Ceilidh dance practices

Dates have been set for our dance practice leading up to the 2023 Chieftain’s Ceilidh.

We will be holding three dance practice evenings in the Irish Club, Subiaco prior to the Ceilidh.

If you attended the dance practice evenings for the 2022 Ball and 2023 Burns Supper, then these three practice evenings will be a lot easier to follow as we will be repeating a number of the same dances.

There will be a $7 admission fee to cover the hire of the hall and pay for the bar staff.

Dancing starts at 7.30pm, which leaves you plenty of time to get home from work and have something to eat first. Should you find yourself rushed for time, the Irish Club do meals on a Tuesday night at a very reasonable cost.
