Sets in Leuven, an Irish set dancing festival

Irish set dancing in the amazing city of Leuven, where even the Liberator once studied.
A city with long and very strong links with Ireland.
 
A residential set dancing weekend with ceilis and workshops to mark the 400 plus 10 anniversary of the Flight of the Earls will take place at the historic Irish College in Leuven, Belgium on May 12, 13 and 14 2017.
There will be workshops with Edwina Guckian (for steps) and Ronan Healy (for sets) and The Flight of the Earls Ceili Band will play their mighty tunes for the ceilis.
Although the Flight of the Earls may be seen as the end of the old Gaelic order in Ireland, the time they spent safe and welcome in Leuven in 1607 is something we continue to commemorate to this day. We look forward to welcoming you here to be part of that commemoration.
