Set Dances is a practice tool for Irish dancers. It provides the music for all the traditional and championship set dances approved by the Irish Dance Commission (An Coimisiun le Rinci Gaelacha) for use in Irish dance competitions. This app allows the music to be adjusted to a wide range of speeds.

The music tracks were made in sync with a computer metronome, and the indicated speeds have been checked for accuracy against a stopwatch and other calibrated timing sources.


- Universal app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch
- All music is built into the app
- Includes the music for the 8 traditional set dances
- Contains the music for more than 35 championship set dances, including the recently added “Planxty Hugh O’Donnell”, "The Vanishing Lake", and "The Charlady"

Not accurate speeds

It's not accurate speeds when I was doing planxty drury at speed 68 it felt like I was doing it at speed 69 or 70 and my dance teacher thought the same thing but other than that it has nice music! I give it a 3 stars only because the speeds are a little fast.

Great app!

This app makes learning sets so easy! It's a great TCRG study tool, it's essential for the serious dancer, and TCs will find it invaluable in the studio. No longer are you locked in to pre-recorded speeds. Well worth the money!!
