End Of Term Hooley:
Around the end of each term, we typically have a "hooley" at each of the venues where classes are held. These hoolies are for people who have attended my classes during the term. The end-of-term hooley is not a public ceili, it is a private party gathering where people who have attended my classes can dance through the dances we have learned during the term.
The following hoolies have been arranged, or are in the process of being arranged, for the end of the first term in the 2017/2018 dance year - it would be great if we had a mix of people from all the classes at each of the hoolies:
