Have a go at sword dancing

We’re always happy for people to come along to one of our practices to have a go at longsword dancing – there’s no pressure to formally join the team. Our dances are a great physical workout, helping to build agility and stamina. We’re a sociable bunch and practice is followed by a chat and a couple of pints at the local pub.

Our practices take place on Wednesday evenings, 8 – 10pm, at the Burton Street Foundation, Hillsborough, Sheffield. We welcome female and male members, beginners, pros and musicians as well as less-nimble dancers. Being a member gives you the chance to attend a host of events, keep this famous local tradition alive, and above all have fun.

Get in touch to have an informal chat about coming along or to let us know to expect you!
