L2F Dancers

‘Dancing in the City’ at L2F is fast becoming one of the premier traditional dance events in the Midlands with more sides than ever giving an amazingly colourful and eye-catching display. Sides from across the wider region will gather in Lichfield City Centre on Saturday 19 October to give fascinating and fun-filled demonstrations of toe-tapping Morris styles. Several styles of Morris Dancing are on show including:

Border Morris which is a tradition that comes from the borders of Wales and England and is characterised by stick-clashing, the wearing of ‘rag jackets’ and painted faces.

Northwest Clog Morris which is characterised by the wearing of clogs and where many of the dances originate from the towns and cities of the North West of England.

Cotswold Morris where the set dances include handkerchief dances, processional dances, stick dances and hand clapping dances.

Rapper Sword Dancers who dance in clogs and dance with swords.

Molly Dancing Farm workers would have performed these dances to earn money in the winter and, in disguise, made fun of the gentry

Appalachian Step Dancing originating from America.
