What we're about

Want to meet people and make new friends? Want to get some exercise and need a legit alternative to the gym? Want to have fun, enjoy dancing and try something new? Then this for you! The Ceilidh Experiment is a series of dance events, set in the gorgeous EGO Performance Venue, with lively and exciting music from our resident live band, Vic Smith and Nick Dewhurst.

A ceilidh is an evening of dances for everyone to join in with. You dance each dance with a partner (usually a different partner for each dance) but also with a group of other couples called a set. The moves are easy — you’ll pick it up very quickly — and there is a caller (an instructor) to walk you through the dances and keep prompting over the music. Wear loose comfortable clothing and flat shoes you can dance in. There is no need to bring a partner, but feel free to bring all your friends.

We’re privileged to be able to hold our events in the beautiful EGO Performance Venue. Located in central Coventry, with good parking and public transport links, EGO is a cosy venue with a cafe/bar and a great atmosphere. Coming straight from work on a Friday? No problem — the cafe will be serving delicious food beforehand.
