For this week we’ve got an Ar Rinci Foirne ceili dance that will take some practice to get right but when done all the way through will give you a decent workout.

The dance for this week is an easy, but fun Irish set dance that’s also known as the Connemara Jig set. Foraer A Neaintin was originally danced as a half-set and you’ll often find that the first three figures are shortened to omit the second tops and sides repeats. Some people just want to get to the next dance I suppose. Click through for notes and links to video and music references.
