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