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.
Several members travelled south last weekend to Yass for the Turning Wave Festival (Julia, Arthur, Mary, Mike & Angus). This is a fairly lowkey festval, but it ran very smoothly and all the teachers presented interesting ses. The ceili's featured live music - including some of the best musicians (out here travelling and teaching in Australia).
Coming up in October will be the annual Canberra Irish Set Dancing weekend (10-12 October), then on 15 November our 15th Anniversary with the "Spring Fling" at Shamrock Hall.
