You might like to check out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page first and then use "Back" to come back to here.
If you decide it is something you'd like to have a go at, you'll be very welcome to join us any Tuesday. 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.
Learn set dancing, join in the Ceili and enjoy the craic!
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!". There is absolutely nothing to lose by coming along and giving it a try - if you decide it's not for you, there is no obligation whatsoever to come back again. One thing for sure is that you will be made welcome. The majority of people come along on their own and we are all delighted to see new people coming through the door for the first time, whether they are men on their own, women on their own, or couples. Within minutes, you will feel totally at home with a friendly bunch of people, who are out to enjoy the craic. In addition to the weekly class, some of the gang meet up at local festivals and ceilis throughout the year, where the craic continues. You will not find a more fun way to exercise!
Why not give it a try, it could well be the start of a new and very enjoyable lifelong pastime!
Each class begins at 8pm and typically runs as follows:
From time-to-time, we occasionally have a night of ceili and two-hand dances instead of set dancing. Ceili dances, such as The Siege of Ennis and The Walls of Limerick and two-hand dances such as Shoe the Donkey and The Stack of Barley are very popular at weddings and other family gatherings and whenever we want to celebrate our Irishness, such at St. Patrick's Day festivities.

About the class:
The emphasis is on dancing for enjoyment. It really is great fun and well worth a try - just come along any Tuesday night at around 8pm. Most people turn up on their own, but if you can convince others to come along with you, so much the better - the more, the merrier! Most people get great enjoyment of of it, but, if you decide it's not for you, there is no obligation whatsoever to come back. So, there's a lot to gain and very little to lose.
New dancers are welcome at any time. We start a new set from scratch every few weeks, so newcomers are not at any disadvantage. 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.
Above all else, the primary objective is to have fun!
Beginners and experienced dancers are welcome at any time.
It is not necessary to book in advance, just come along.
Why not give it a try - you will be very welcome.
