Stompin’ and stampin’ has a long history in NL. Whether it’s the “Lancers”, “Running the Goat” or an improvised step dance, people here have found many occasions to let loose--and that includes mummering.
In this two-part event, learn about the history of dance in NL and then we’ll bring you to your feet for a dance--you'll learn the basics to several traditional dances with dance caller Jane Rutherford and dance musicians Christina Smith on fiddle and Dave Panting on mandolin. Don’t be shy! No experience needed.
And all this is good preparation for the Mummers Parade where we’ll be having a good ol’ scuff with live music to finish off the day.
Be there and be SQUARE...dancing that is!
