Returning to Ogunquit for their annual visit, the acclaimed Stillson School of Irish Dance brings a troupe of more than a dozen dancers garbed in brilliant, sparkling costumes. Always a local favorite, the dancers will perform an array of jigs and reels which have won them prizes at regional and international competitions.
After their performance, the Stillson dancers will invite children and dancers of all ages to join them in trying out a few steps. A reception with refreshments will follow. Join us for this festive St. Patrick’s celebration!
