Wednesday nights during ACT school terms 2023
All welcome, including new dancers. No experience or partner required.
Interested in learning to dance? Do you enjoy socialising with people who love to dance? Want to have fun while getting great exercise?
ALL are very welcome to Irish Set Dancing classes on Wednesday evenings (7.30 to 9.30pm)
Suitable for adults of all ages. All dances are taught and called. First TWO classes are FREE.
While Irish Set Dancing is done in couples, you don’t need to have a partner in order to come along! We regularly swap people around so that people get a chance to dance with many experienced dancers. We’ve found that this is the best way for new dancers to learn set dancing.
Ask us if you would like a class for new dancers, focussing on the basic steps and some of the more popular sets. These can be arranged on request.
If you want to see how much fun you can have, and hear how wonderful the music is to dance to, have a look at the many Irish Set Dancing clips on youtube. Here’s one to get you going – the Plain Set danced outdoors in Kilrush, County Clare, with the Five Counties Ceili Band (starts at 2.28 min) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54AQlRB6l-4&list=RD54AQlRB6l-4&index=1
