Irish Set Dancers
Newcastle Irish Set Dancers
conduct classes in Irish Set dancing - the social dancing of the
Irish. The group is located in Newcastle, New South Wales
(Australia) and is part of the Newcastle and Hunter
Valley Folk Club.
We had a great Ceili in East Gosford on Sunday, 8 February with a
good turn up of dancers from Sydney, Newcastle and the Central
Coast. We'll look for another suitable date somewhere in the
middle of the year for another round of dancing.
We're looking forward to the next Shamrock Hall Ceili on
Saturday, 7th March. Contact Julia & Arthur or Julia &
Philip for details.
Regular classes for Newcastle Irish Set Dancers every
Tuesday from 7:15-9:15 pm at The Place - Charlestown
Community Centre, cnr Frederick & Ferris Sts,
Charlestown. We have classes every week from the start of February
through to early-mid December (with the exception of the Tuesday
immediately following Easter. Downloadable
