*for those who are new to this ….Ceilidh is pronounced ‘caylee‘. In Scotland ceilidhs are popular for any kind of celebration but especially weddings and are a place where all ages can get together and dance these beautiful set dances. Many Scots have dubious memories of ‘the social dancing’ from school where all children learn the dances by being forcibly paired up and made to dance to recorded music in a gym hall. But this will be different
