Our group began in 2003 when Paul
Wayper moved to Canberra from Melbourne. On discovering that the
local folk dancing program did not feature a regular Irish Set dancing
class, he decided to start one and the group has grown from
We have a team approach to teaching and calling and the current group
of teachers and callers includes Paul Wayper, Paul Carr,
David Arnold, Christine Briton, Peter Stringfellow,
Leslie Carr and Peter Kennedy.
In addition to a weekly class we hold an annual weekend workshop
devoted to set dancing and a group of dancers have established the Set
in their Ways display team for festivals and community events.
