Set dancing is a form of social dancing which has been popular in Ireland for over 200 years. Sets are danced by four couples in a square, and usually consist of three to six figures (patterns) with a short pause between each. They are descended from the French quadrilles, which were brought to Ireland by the British army in the eighteenth century. Square dancing probably developed from set dancing. Sets are very popular today in Ireland and in communities throughout the world.
