The night moved along fast. There was some teaching, then some dancing, then more teaching and more dancing. Every few songs the whole floor would take a breather to get drinks and snacks. There were about 37 people there — couples, singles, families, all kinds, all types. The whole group was wildly energetic. They danced and laughed and just had fun the whole time.
I’m glad you enjoyed it Brandon and hope you can make it out to future ceili ‘s.
Over the weekend Susan and I started reviewing a new dance DVD called Faoi Do Chois from Padraig and Roisin McEneany which includes instructions for four sets, the Connemara, Durrow Threshing, Fermanagh and South Sligo Lancers.
While not perfect, this is an excellent resource for those (like us) looking to learn more sets to teach others, or those others looking to just learn more sets.
We haven’t made it all the way through the DVD yet but I wanted to get a basic review out while we study to teach the first few figures of the Durrow Threshing set for an upcoming ceili.
