dancing or folk dancing - a traditional form of Irish Dancing that is very
popular today in many countries.
dancing is NOT Irish step dancing as in Riverdance. This
is a fun, low impact Irish dance style, somewhat akin to American square
dancing and is danced to Irish jigs, reels, polkas, slides, and
hornpipes. Dancers derive a great aerobic benefit and enjoyment from
the dancing. It is sociable and fun!
the classes you will learn the basic steps, moves and terminology.
You don't need to bring a partner as you can dance with different people
throughout the evening, but if people do come with a partner with whom
they wish to dance, that is fine too.
workshops and dances are pay as you go, so no one pays for a class that
they can't attend.
