Set Dance Class

It's time to set dance again!  Our next class is scheduled for Monday, March 31, from 6:30 to 7:45 at the Friends Meeting House.  That would be tomorrow.  Yikes!  Sorry for the short notice. We will start on the North Kerry Set which is a great one for learning the "round the house" move and we might revisit a figure or two from previous classes.  So far we have danced the Kildownet Half Set, Antrim Square Set, and Aran Set.  Here are some representative youtube videos in case you want to take…See More
