The Carroll-Henderson School of Irish Dancing in Edmonds will host a free open house on Tuesday, Aug. 30,  and invites children ages 3-10 “to hop, leap, and spin around the dancing floor while celebrating the end of the summer.”

Open house time for 3- to 5-year-olds is 5-5:30 p.m. and for 6- to 10-year-olds, it’s 5:45-6:15 p.m.

According to the school, “Irish dancing has been a mainstay of Irish culture since the earliest day of the celts. The traditional music and dance scene were deeply entwined, as throughout the generations, locals would gather to play music and dance. The dance form evolved from its most traditional roots when the Gaelic League was founded in 1893 that promoted Irish language and culture which included dance.”
