Dance Sides 2021
In 1936, a group of miners in the village of Lingdale in Yorkshire were filmed by Lady Trevelyn, performing their traditional longsword dance. In 1948, Peter Kennedy wrote down all the moves of the dance, which had gained an extra two figures in the intervening years.
In 2016, Southern Star Longsword dancers, with the aid of the Sword Dance Union and detailed notes written by Roy Dommett, brought together all the historical information about this dance, and started bringing it back to life again.
