3:30-4:30 pm Irish Set dancing – The Connemara Set
Are you ready to try something new and fun? Ready to get out and move? If you are, then dance with the Inisheer Irish Dancers as we welcome you for two introductory workshops.
Irish sets are danced by four couples in a square, and are derived from French Quadrilles which were brought to Ireland in the nineteenth century. Irish dancers adapted the figures to their own music and steps to form dances with great drive and enjoyment.
You can participate in one or both of the workshops.
There is no fee, but donations appreciated.
Everyone who participates will get a free Inisheer Irish Dancers T-shir ... Gainesville Irish Dancers Studio, 16 NW 7th Ave, Gainesville, 32601. Piper Call, 352-327-1090. Inisheer Irish Dance Company - [more][inisheer][email][events]
