Irish Set Dancing in Canberra

About us

Our group began in 2003 when Paul Wayper moved to Canberra from Melbourne. On discovering that the local folk dancing program did not feature a regular Irish Set dancing class, he decided to start one and the group has grown from there.

We have a team approach to teaching and calling and the current group of teachers and callers includes Paul Wayper, Paul Carr, David Arnold, Christine Briton, Peter Stringfellow, Leslie Carr and Peter Kennedy.

In addition to a weekly class we hold an annual weekend workshop devoted to set dancing and a group of dancers have established the Set in their Ways display team for festivals and community events.
