Try something new, bring some friends, and make new ones. Enjoy an afternoon learning the basics of Irish Set Dancing!
Best summed up as ‘Irish square dancing,’ to Irish music of course. ‘Sets’ are arranged as 4 couples in a square. This style of dance goes back well over a century (more info here: http://www.ottawacomhaltas.com/dance.php).

Beginners are most welcome. Couples do not have to be male-female for this workshop. Single registrants will be paired with another person.
Maureen Mulvey (Ireland, now Toronto) is the instructor and has taught set dancing for decades and one of the best instructors in North America.
Goal: By the end of the workshop you will have a good base for dancing at any Irish Set Dance.
Bring suitable shoes for indoor dancing. Dress comfortably, and bring a water bottle. Street parking and also the Murray Street City garage is less than a block away.
Entrance is via pub entry on Cumberland Street, in the building of the former St. Brigid’s Church.
For those interested, after the workshop, there will be a social gathering afterwards in the adjoining Irish pub, Brigid’s Well. Food will be available for purchase.
