Irish Set Dancing in Nova Scotia

The most fun you can have on two feet

Scaip na Cleiti Dancers

Scaip na Cleiti Dancers are available for performances, demonstrations and instruction. Experienced dancers will lead your group through simple and fun movements.

As well as set dances, Scaip na Cleiti perform and teach céili dance, a form that can be easily adapted for large groups. We also perform old-style and sean-nós step dances, which have been handed down from person to person for generations.
