It’s finally cooling off, the clouds saw fit to mizzle on us most of the day and the temperature was finally in the range where it was pleasant to go for a walk in the middle of the day.
Naturally we all piled into the pub Trinity Hall to jump around and get hot to good music played by the Trinity Hall Session Players
The dances done were:
Siege of Ennis
High Cauled Cap
Rakes of Mallow
Hopefully next month I’ll be able to spend more time dancing and calling than this time. Thanks to everyone how came out to dance and to Trinity Hall and the session players for the venue and wonderful music!

From the July 15th ceili at Trinity Hall
For a number of reasons, we’ve been tardy in putting up pictures from recent dancing events. Well, here they are:
Trinity Hall Feb 19
Trinity Hall Mar 18
The next dance is on April 7th at the Sammons Center. Come on out and join the fun!
Last night’s SCMA ceili at the Sammons Center was great fun. Had another good crowd and made it through the Antrim Square, Cavan Reel Set, Bonfire Dance, Siege of Carrick, Fairy Reel, Balleyvourney Jig Set, Haymakers Jig and the Back to Back Hornpipe
Next month the ceili will be at the North Texas Irish Festival so come on out at 7pm for the ceili and 1pm for the dance workshop
The next SCMA ceili is coming up this Saturday at the Sammons Center.
Tell your friends, your friends friends, your siblings and office cohorts about the ceili. Drag those people out who you know would enjoy a night of jumping, sliding, bouncing fun with good music but insist on saying ‘I don’t know how.’ We’ll show you and there are plenty of people who can help pull and push you through the dances.
The theme for this ceili is ‘Less teaching, more dancing.’ We’re going to try just running through the more difficult aspects of a dance and depend on people to watch closely when it isn’t their turn and on the experienced group at large to help the new people if they run into trouble. If there are enough ‘ringers’ at the ceili that should result in more dancing throughout the night.
For the lesson period this month we’ll finish up the Cavan Reel and continue with the Antrim Square.
For the main ceili time we’re thinking of doing (in no particular order):
Cavan Reel Set
Siege of Carrick
Balleyvourney Jig Set
Walls of Limerick
Back to Back Hornpipe
Aoife Three Step
Bridge of Athlone
Had a good crew out for dancing at the first Trinity Hall ceili of 2012.
Great music by the THSP as well. Thanks everyone for coming out!

We did the North Kerry set, Haymakers Jig, Siege of Carrick, Rakes of Mallow, 4-hand and 6-hand. Great music, great fun!
