About this event

Get ready for a family Hoe Down!

Join Cut A Shine Barn Dance Band for a session of modern traditional partner dances. Suitable for all ages and abilities, these dances are hundreds of years old and still alive and kicking, all delivered with a modern twist from the band. Expertly instructed by our dance caller, you will need no experience as all dances are taught during the workshop. We will swing our partners, do-si-do and promenade, and learn loads of traditional dance moves. Kids and adults alike will love shaking their stuff and having fun together!
