Our dances are from the English North-Western counties of Lancashire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire. They are usually named after the towns and villages in which they originated - for example, Runcorn (Cheshire), Grenoside (Yorkshire), Shawforth (Lancashire).
The dances are classified as Garland, Stick, Clog or Hankie. The New Holland Hankie Dance, which was choreographed by our leader, is unique to the Fair Maids of Perth.
The dance steps include ranting (an exaggerated polka step), skipping, and high step 'marching'.
