About The Event
Are Ya Dancin’? Is the question being asked this year at Tradfest Temple Bar by Clare born céilí caller and fiddle player Louise O’Connor of Lasta Dance. Join Louise and band for an Irish College style céilí for dancers and non-dancers alike with brilliant live music, songs and an opportunity for a slow dance or two as well as a chance to practice your Irish as the cúpla focail will also be included.
1.30 - 2.15 Set Dancing Intro
2.15 - 3.30 Céilí Dance Instruction
Resident set dancing teacher in The Cobblestone Pub Louise O’Connor has been on a mission to keep alive the céilí dances as a way for people to meet and build community, bringing a piece of the west to the big smoke. Lasta Dance means ‘alight’ or ‘aglow’ and relates to keeping the old traditions ’alight’ as well as to the glow that Irish traditional music and dance can ignite in people.
