The dance for this week is a relatively new dance created by John and Sheila McEvoy and their friend Mairéad Devane called the Rinkinstown Set. Follow the link for figure notes and links to video of the set.
The Caledonian Set is a fun dance that’s an old favorite and a great opportunity to use your battering footwork. You’ll find that in some venues they encourage lots of free expression in the Caledonian and in some you’ll want to keep things low. Either way, you’re bound to have fun. Follow the link for notes and videos.
The Dance of the Week for this week is a simple ceili dance called the Siege of Ennis. Follow the link for notes and videos.
The Dance of the Week for this week is the Clare Lancers set. It’s a lively set that’s done at most ceilis throughout the world and is especially fun when there’s a large hall full of people creating lines from one end of the hall to the other. Follow the link for notes and videos.
The Dance of the Week for this week is the Corofin Plain Set. It’s an easy set to learn with some really fun figures. Notes and videos available through the link.
