CeilidhKids at the Fringe

Family workshop suitable for children aged 3-7 years with parents or carers, but everyone welcome. We involve everyone: skip, clap and march together to traditional Scottish music. Enjoy discovering very simple (often simplified) dances that you might find at a ceilidh or Scottish country dance, celebrating the social aspects of dancing with a partner. CeilidhKids is all about fun for all generations. Hugely popular with local families, now it's your turn. Bring Mum or Dad along to partner you under the chandeliers! All children should be accompanied by an adult who is willing to join in; one adult can dance with two children.

‘…a fabulous way to start the day and burn off energy… before sitting in a dark room watching something more cerebral.’ (Thom Dibdin, All Edinburgh Theatre 2018)
