Stanford Ceili Banner


Welcome to Stanford Ceili, the only ceili Irish dance group in the South Bay! Join us for weekly social dancing, open to anyone! Drop-ins are always welcome!



When: Tuesdays 7-9pm, Thursdays 8:30-10:30pm (year-round)

Where: Rains Hacienda Commons (map) at Stanford University.

Where: (See bottom of this page!)

Cost: Free!


Ceili dance is much like the step dancing seen in Riverdance but far more casual and danced in sets (similar to contra). Absolutely no prior dance experience is required, we love beginners! We will teach all the basic steps, and build to more intermediate choreographies.


Information on classes and sessions can be found here.
