Welcome to the website for Irish Set Dancing in Canberra. Irish
Set Dancing is fun, sociable and great exercise for the body and brain.
It is a form of traditional dance featuring sets of eight dancers (four
couples) dancing to traditional Irish folk tunes such as reels, jigs,
polkas, slides and hornpipes.

In Canberra we have weekly classes on Wednesday nights and an annual
dance weekend. We also have occasional 'deck dances' and social get
togethers. The Set in their Ways group displays at festivals
and community events. We occasionally teach at other classes and
events in Australia.
We are part of the Monaro Folk Society which
has a great program of complementary music and dance events.
Please contact us for more information about any of our events or activities.
