Who’s it For?
An enjoyable New Year break for dancers of all levels of experience. There will be a variety of dance styles to try, plus music and other activities. Callers are welcome too.
Ted & Pat Morse: Ted began dancing with the Oxford Morris Men and Oxford City Folk Dance Club when he was 17, started calling and running barn dances at 19, and has barely paused since! Ted plays accordion, percussion and tuba, is an experienced band leader, teaches Morris, Sword and Country dancing (and more!) and is a regular tutor at Halsway Manor – along with Pat. Between them they promise a fun and varied break packed with folk dancing and activities to bring in the New Year!
Rod & Francis Stradling: create music that you just have to dance to! Their repertoire covers all styles of English and Scottish dancing and a range of other types of dance. Both are active dancers themselves so they know what they like, and aim to provide an enthusiastic performance that dancers will appreciate.
