Dan Furey St Patrick's Day - a series of videos for home study
"Zoom with Annette" – the block 10 level 3 series of classes is available for home study.
Level 3 - for those who have been dancing a while and are ready to start memorising longer and more complicated routines.
Annette will teach St Patrick's Day Set Dance, as danced by the Dan Furey Group - the full version which comprises of step 1, set 1, step 2, set 2 and a finishing step. Each step is 8 bars long - leading on the right foot and repeated with the left; each set is 14 bars long - leading on the right foot and repeated with the left. A number of movements are repeated within the dance which will make these 5 sections achievable at this level.
An Irish 'Set Dance', is a dance that has been choreographed to a particular piece of music – there can be a number of different versions of the dance – all danced to the same music. A dancer could choose to perform 2 or even 3 versions in a row, if they so wish.
For your information, the Dan Furey group currently meets online each month, providing an opportunity to dance Dan's repertoire with like minded soles/souls. These monthly events are free to attend, further information on the Dan Furey group can be found on my Blog page.
