SURREY — The plaza at city hall is a place for Ceilidh Tuesdays in August.

Live music and free dance lessons are promised at the “Dancing in the Plaza” events, presented by the City of Surrey’s parks and recreation department.

“Kick up your heels at Ceilidh Tuesdays at City Hall Plaza in August for lively jigs and Celtic folk dancing,” reads a post on the city’s website.

“This dance series is open to all skill levels. Come early to learn some new steps and grow as you go! Each week will build on the previous week’s lesson, but beginners are always welcome.”

The band Blackthorn will perform.

“Ceilidh” (pronounced kay-lee) is a Gaelic word used to describe a group of people that come together to enjoy Irish and Scottish music, dance and storytelling, the post notes.

The events are scheduled to take place on Tuesdays from Aug. 2 to 30, from 4:30 to 7 p.m., at the plaza, 13450 104th Ave., Surrey.
