Members of the Francis O'Neill Club offer dance instruction at the Irish American Heritage Center every week!
NEW! Lessons for New Dancers -- Tues Feb 12, 7:00-7:30p
Once a month, we start class a little earlier so we can help new dancers get familiar with set dance basics - footwork, counting, how to 'house' etc. New dancer lessons are for people just getting started in set dance and also for experienced dancers who would like a refresher. All are welcome!
We plan to have New Dancer lessons once a month. Watch this space for dates of upcoming New Dancer lessons!
First Friday Lessons
Set Dance Instruction for new or experienced dancers who want to work on basic jig-reel-polka-hornpipe steps.
First Friday of the month, 7:30-8:30 p.m. - Usually Fifth Province - See Events page for room location
Instructors: Dan Cahill and Friends
Stick around for the Céilí Mór 8:30-11:30 p.m.
New to Irish dancing?
Join us at our weekly ceili practices. We'll help you learn the basics.
Bring a partner, or just bring yourself--we'll provide partners!
Special shoes and/or clothes are not necessary, but here are some suggestions:
- Wear comfortable shoes with leather soles, if possible, that make it easy for your feet to slide across the floor. Many women find that a small heel works well.
- Dress for warm weather or wear layers that allow you to move.
- Bring a water bottle if you have one. We provide water and small paper or styrofoam cups but many people find it convenient to bring a larger container.
