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.

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.

* The terms ladies and gents are used in Irish set dancing.
