The dance of the week for this week is the Listowel Stitches by Susan Harrison. It’s a combination of movements from several standard ceili dances which was first taught at the 2013 O’Flaherty Irish Music Youth Camp and named by Lillian O’Flaherty. Click through for notes.
A small change has just gone live which is the display of the fun and difficulty rating for each dance on the listing page. If a dance has been rated, you’ll see either a face (fun) or a star (difficulty) with a number overlaid. We’ll be tweaking the difficulty icon soon to make it clearer but for the moment you can see the rating if you’re looking for dances based on fun level or difficulty.
The Dance Of The Week for this week is the North Kerry Set. It’s a fairly easy set with a good variety of movements and lively tune styles. Click through for notes and links to videos and music.
