The majority of people who attend these classes come along on their own, but if you can convince others to join you, so much the better, the more the merrier!

If you are within reach of one of our classes, whether you live permanently in Ireland, or are visiting from abroad, you are very welcome to join us any night that you are available. You will be made very welcome and we guarantee a good night's craic - above all else, the primary objective is to have fun!

Come along and give it a try, there's absolutely no obligation to stay, or return, if you decide it's not for you. If you still need convincing, have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Set dancing has become very popular in recent years - it's great fun, good exercise and a great way to meet people. The class caters for both experienced dancers and beginners and you can join in at any stage. It is not necessary to have a partner, but couples may of course dance together if they wish.

The class provides detailed instructions on the steps, figures and timing for the popular Irish dances, including Set Dancing and Sean Nos. The main emphasis is on dancing for enjoyment and many of the class participants meet up at ceili and festival events throughout the year.

Beginners and experienced dancers are welcome at any time.

Clothing and Shoes:

No special clothing is required, just wear whatever you are comfortable in. Although leather-soled shoes are easiest to dance in, your choice of footwear is totally up to you. You don't need special shoes, but if you do decide to invest, make sure not to get "noisy" ones, such as the ones sold for tap dancing, hard-shoe, and other types of solo dance. Whereas solo dancing shoes may have "metalwork" on the heels, toes, and/or soles, set dancing shoes do not require any metal at all on the heels, toes, or sole.

While of course, we'd love if you could attend every class, we realise that this is not always possible. You are always welcome to join us whenever you are available, whether you are an experienced or inexperienced dancer, even if it is only for a single night.

Visiting Ireland:

If you are visiting Ireland, you are very welcome to join us, even if it is only for a single night. The class provides a relaxed and friendly environment in which to enjoy the fun of Irish set dancing. The class runs each year from the second week in September until the last week in May the following year.

Cameras & Phones:

We would prefer if you left your cameras and video at home and, unless you are expecting an urgent call, we'd prefer if you switched off your mobile phone, or put it on silent, during class. Anyone wanting to take a memento photo, please say so and we will invite people who wish to be in the photo to assemble during break time.

I Look forward to seeing you.
Pat.
