Dance teams

We love traditional dance! Whether at our festival village inside the NMRN, performing and leading workshops in the Family Festival or out in the streets and pubs, these are the sides to look out for!

With thanks to our Dance Coordinator,Roger Kennington

The Kingsmen perform the fast and furious Rapper Sword dances that originated in the mining culture of the North East. As likely to be found whirling in a crowded pub as dancing in the streets!
