Set dancing is a beloved social dancing tradition in Ireland, with roots hundreds of years old. If you visit Ireland in the summer and throw a stone, you’ll hit a summer school or festival that teaches and celebrates Irish traditional music alongside set dancing and old-style percussive sean nós dancing.
Through our Set Dancing Club, we’re bringing the Irish social dancing tradition right here to central Kentucky.
The next upcoming class is:
