Six (sets of) ladies dancing


Saltaire Festival 2014  - This annual late summer celebration soon seems to come around again. The first weekend this year was a chance for lots of local people to show how creative they are. Saltaire's Rainbow Morris dance side had invited some other dance groups to join them. I managed to catch up with them just as they were doing their final dances. It seems to be a tradition at such group gatherings for everyone to join in together, after they have each danced their own sets, for a good old knees-up. (And yes, there was at least one male dancer too!)

  5. This would be fun to see. The idea of having the dancers together at the culmination reminds me of once seeing Highland Games at Braemar. At the end there were massed bands, with all of the competing bagpipe bands marching together. It was a memorable spectacle.
