Devon’s folk and community arts development charity Wren Music is launching Feet First For Families to introduce children, young people and families across Devon to folk dance in all its forms – social dance, step dancing and morris dancing. It kicks off with a Family Dance Day on Saturday, November 21, in Sidmouth.
On the Saturday Family Dance Days, young people can bring along family members and discover the fun of the dance.
You’ll be able to try out some smart dance steps, watch displays by local folk dancers, and get up on their feet at a ceilidh – all with live music, accompaniament , with chances for people taking part to join in with that too if they play an instrument.
The first Family Dance Day will be held on Saturday, November 21 at St Teresa’s Hall, Vicarage Road, Sidmouth, 10.30am-3.30pm.
And the day of folk dancing antic costs £10 per family of two adults and up to three children (or one adult and four children). All adults will need to be accompanied by a young person. Children under eight years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Over the coming months, the Feet First For Families project will continue with further schools and youth club workshops and Family Dance Days in Ivybridge, Barnstaple, Ashburton, Tiverton and Okehampton.
