Folk Dancing classes


A great night of lively social dancing every Wednesday in St. Ignatius community hall, Richmond.
You don't need any experience or partner, beginners always welcome.

Set dancing sometimes called "country sets", are a popular form of folk dancing.

Set dancing has become very popular in recent years – it’s great fun, good exercise and a great way to meet people. The class caters for both experienced dancers and beginners and you can join in at any stage. It is not necessary to have a partner, this is how most people attend the class and change dancing partners during the night which gives you a chance to meet lots of new people.

Who does this kind of dancing?

One of the best forms of social dancing, set dancing is done by all age groups. When at one of the festival dances it is normal to see young, middle aged & older dancers up on the floor having a great time together.

Beginners and experienced dancers are welcome at any time.

It is not necessary to book in advance, just come along.
Clothing and Shoes:
No special clothing is required, just wear whatever you are comfortable in. Although hard-soled shoes are easiest to dance in, your choice of footwear is totally up to you. You don’t need special shoes.

New dancers are welcome at any time. We start a new set from scratch every few weeks, so newcomers are not at any disadvantage.
