Our dancers are currently aged between fairly youngish and somewhat over 60. We are now recruiting
new members aged 16 and over. So, whatever your level of fitness or however many left feet you think you have, if you would like to maintain English cultural traditions, and also relish ready wit and repartee, a tankard of fine ale (or soft drink) and a song or two, then join us !
We meet every Thursday at 8.00 to 10.00 pm
During the summer season (May till end of September) we dance out at fine ale houses around Torquay, Newton Abbot, South East Dartmoor and local environs. we also perform at various festivals,
events and celebrations.
We always dance out on Boxing Day.
During the winter months (October till end of April) we practice at Kingskerswell Scout Hall.
Our Kit comprises black breeches, white shirts and socks, blue neckerchief, and yellow baldricks,
arm ribbons and ubiquitous bells.
The baldricks centrepiece is the Saint Leonards Clocktower in Newton Abbot.
