We're super excited to return to the Falcon Hotel Bude for a fortnightly series of #cornishdance workshops in the run up to Bude & Stratton Folk Festival at the end of May.
"It's what Sunday afternoons were made for . . . " :DDANCERS
A great way to keep fit and have some fun with a friendly bunch of people learning traditional Cornish folk dances.
All dances are taught from scratch, and no partner is required.
Bring scoots/clogs/taps/hard shoes for the step dances if you have them (if not, 50 pence pieces gaffa-taped to the soles of your shoes will work really well too!).
We're looking to acquire scoots/clogs/taps for children and adults, and setting up inclusive sessions for adults and children, with the amazing Kate and Jon Tidball continuing to take the dances into school.
A chance to learn/refresh how to play for dancing with Steve Hunt as part of the "International Folk Orchestra of Bude".
Here's the set list . . .
- Tregajorran Furry
- Bodmin Riding
- Newlyn Reel
- Sunny Corner (Six Hand Reel)
- Polka Covath (Corwedhen)
- 3 Hand Reel
- 4 Hand Reel

And here's the big set of Cornish dance tunes if you'd like to add a few more Cornish tunes to your repertoire.
Magic Hat payf (pay as you feel - a fiver would be nice :) )
Afternoon tea, coffee and cake available.
