Inisheer Open House & Dance Workshop 2023
- 3-3:30 pm Break for socializing: tea, Irish soda bread and other treats!
- 2-3 pm Sean nós (‘Old Style’) Irish step dance: Sean-nós step dance is characterized by its “low to the ground” footwork, improvised steps, free movement of the arms with high value placed on personal style.
- 3:30-4:30 pm Irish Set dancing – The Connemara Set figures 1 through 4!
Irish sets are danced by four couples in a square, and are derived from French Quadrilles which were brought to Ireland in the nineteenth century. Irish dancers adapted the figures to their own music and steps to form dances with great drive and enjoyment.
Inisheer Irish Dancers, based in Gainesville, Florida and directed by Piper Call since 2003, performs at festivals around North Florida.
