The easy, fun dances that Tom brings to schools are influenced by his family roots in the small Hebridean island of Raasay, so students and teachers are guaranteed an engaging and authentic experience. Our ceilidh (pronounced Kei-li) workshops immerse students in natural English while they dance, sing, learn about a new culture and experience the real Scottish bagpipes. It’s plenty of English and zero digital!
