Set Dancing Teachers
Set dancing is a form of social dancing which has been
popular in Ireland for over 150 years. Sets are danced by four couples
in a square, and usually consist of three to six figures with a short
pause between each. They are descended from the French quadrilles,
which were brought to Ireland by the British army in the nineteenth

decline in the fifties and sixties, sets are very popular today in
Ireland and in Irish communities throughout the world.
