Join the Celtic Revival that’s sweeping the country! Try your hand (and feet!) at Irish set dancing—a form of social dancing similar to square dancing. Danced to jigs, reels, polkas, and hornpipes, set dancing—traditionally performed during a céilí (Irish dance/social)— promotes physical coordination, learning to count measures of music, and recognizing repeating patterns. Learn a few words of Irish, and compare Celtic visual art with the patterns in the dance to boot! So, come put the music under your feet and you’ll soon be asking, “Where’s the next céilí?”
