North to SouthUnder Construction - have submissions?
There has been some expressed interest, however no word around the region of anyone offering any events or leadership. There are also some folks spread about who would be interested in social dance, Irish Set, Two-Handed, or Ceili dance, all are forms of social (or country) dance
A "Set" is a term used in lieu of Dance Directions as might be heard in other country dance. When they say new sets are rarely composed, it essentially means new dances are not written. Use of Set this way is different from other forms of country dance where Set refers to the group configuration for a given dance. I've discovered it also refers to the formation or group on the floor, "Are all your sets complete?"
Is there someone already dancing it that doesn't know about Island Dance, the site or list? Please pass the word both directions
