Scaip na Cleiti* is the Irish Set Dancing group in Nova Scotia. We have two weekly activities, a Sunday afternoon dance music session at the Old Triangle and a Monday evening class. We also meet bi-weekly for sean nos step classes.
Irish Set Dancing is sweeping the world. To put it simply, eight people create a square formation, and follow a series of movements using simple footwork. More than that, it's cultural, musical, social and good exercise. This article, The Joy of Sets, by Bill Lynch, explains set dancing to non-set dancers.
Our signature event is our Annual Pat Murphy Weekend Workshop. Pat is a world-renowned teacher, collector and historian of dance, who has been teaching at our yearly weekend since 1996.
