The Irish Arts Center partners with CMA so that city kids can explore the Emerald Isle’s culture through music, dance and theater performances, as well as storytelling and art workshops for the wee ones. Learn how to dance traditional jigs with instruction from the McManus School of Irish Dance and Darrah Carr Dance, then join in on a fairy tale dance party (Jan 23, 3:30–6pm), where kids can dress up and get inspired by children's stories written by Irish author and playwright Oscar Wilde. Toward the end of the month, catch interactive dance performances and workshops with Andrew Vickers (Jan 24), then watch a live cello show and try your hand at the instrument with Leah Rankin (Jan 25). All ages.
