Welcome! Almost always 40-80 people! Almost always equal men and women within 5 or 10 people. You can come by yourself and make new friends.  Friendly, community dance. Please join us! <br> <br> We usually have a 5 PM dinner that you can RSVP for.  For the dance: Half-hour lesson at 7 PM.  No experience required.  Dance is challenging but do-able.  Directions before and during each 10-minute dance.  Partners change every 10 minutes. Similar to Irish ceili dance, but no jumps. "Contra" has a fun move with 2 people spinning around each other quickly, if you both want.  20-minute break to meet people. Free snacks often available. Music is always live! Irish music or similar. Everyone is welcome! The events are run by Phoenix Traditional Music & Dance, PHXtmd.org.

We plan to send a welcome letter within a month or so, and then we may ask you if you have any questions or requests a couple months later or after you go to a dance. <br> <br> VIDEOS!

We meet on 2nd Saturdays at historic Kenilworth School, and 4th Fridays at the Irish Cultural Center, both in Phoenix, Arizona.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
