This afternoon it was all about the Walls of Limerick at Lookout Primary School. This popular céili dance is the very first dance I learned, and it continues to be my favorite to teach. We worked on formations and straight lines, doing hop 23s while turning (required when crossing/switching places across the set), and swinging.
The set formation is “wall-like,” with couples facing each other, and I explained that Limerick is a city in Ireland, where I lived for one year.
The girls did a great job with the dance! They have a couple weeks to practice, as it will be spring vacation.
