Set dancing classes in Citywest, Fortunestown Lane, Citywest (off Naas Road), Dublin 24
We meet on Mondays in:
Citywest Educate Together National School
Heritage Village, Citywest, Fortunestown Lane,
Saggart, Dublin 24
Please note that the last night of this class is Monday, 10th December 2012
A great fun way to exercise. Come along and try, if you decide it's not for you, there is no obligation whatsoever to come back. Everyone welcome, partner not required. People who have never done set dancing before are especially welcome.
The most common reaction of people who try set dancing for the first time is "it's really great fun, I wish I had found out about this years ago!".
The class is primarily about dancing for enjoyment in a friendly, sociable environment. While the figures, steps and timing of the popular sets will be explained and practised, we don't take it too seriously - sometimes it's even more fun when things go astray! There is absolutely no experience required and no obligation whatsoever to continue if you decide it's not for you. Most people come along on their own, but if you can convince others to join you, so much the better - the more, the merrier! Above all else, the primary objective is to have fun.
Why not give it a try, it could well be the start of a new and very enjoyable lifelong pastime!
Admission:It is not necessary to book in advance, just come along. Beginners and experienced dancers are welcome at any time.
Note that the last class at this venue is Monday, 12th December 2012 and there are no confirmed dates for classes after that, please click here for details set dancing classes at other venues

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.
Class Outline:The aim of the class is to teach the steps, figures and timing for the popular sets, such that dancers who attend regularly will be able to dance a set, without calling.
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. It is hoped to hold the class throughout the year, apart from the Summer festival period - there will definitely be no class during June, July, August. Please check back here near to the date you plan to come along, to check for updates.
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.
Latest News:In the event that class has to be cancelled any week, e.g. due to bad weather, or any other changes, an email will be sent to the mailing list (you can add your email address to the mailing list below) and a notice will be published at the top of this page. If you are travelling a long distance, you may wish to check this page for any updates before leaving home - any changes will be highlighted in red at the top of the page and will be easy to spot.
