Ceilidhs are an excellent way of having fun with family and friends whether it’s for a wedding, anniversary, birthday or staff party. With his natural ability and instinctive pacing Gary keeps a Ceilidh going with a swing. The mixture of Music, Songs and Dancing -the calling of which is done in such a clear and fun way- -will make everyone feel at ease and ready for the party to begin!
School ceilidhs are a great way of incorporating fun and fitness for everyone and a great way of bringing children, parents and teachers together for a social event or PTA Fundraising. It is always reassuring to know that the entertainment for the event is geared towards the parents as well as the children. His master technique is to involve everyone with a song or a game in between dances in order that nobody gets exhausted or bored with just dancing. “Holding an audience is the key to a successful Ceilidh from start to finish!”
Parents don’t want to see their children running around and becoming distracted in between dances, so this is where Gary’s repertoire of songs and games can make the ceilidh feel like a party rather than a formal ceilidh. It is enjoyable and relaxing for the parents and family to watch the children participate in party games and singing which adds an element of real fun and excitement for the youngsters. There are many competitions including the GARYOKE where singers from each class are invited to sing their favourite songs. Gary also has a great selection of chart songs and dances to play if required, depending on the age group and where there are Nursery children, there is always lots of fun with traditional Musical Games.
At the end of any Ceilidh I can honestly say that I have had just as much fun as the guests have which is why I am always delighted to be asked back!
