Here’s a sample of some of the ceilidh dances that The Big Shoogle play, along with instructions on how to perform each dance. We’ve found over the years that these are the dances that the majority of people can grasp and therefore enjoy. We do of course play for and give instructions for many other ceilidh dances and play for country dances if you and your guests know the steps. And our expert dance caller will talk your guests through all of the dances on the night – so everybody can participate and have a good time. It’s also a great way to get your guests from both sides of the family mixing!
