We are celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2016 with a day of dance around Gower on Sunday 28th August 2016 to mark the anniversary.
We’re delighted to acknowledge the support we have received from The Gower Society, The National Trust and The Gower Landscape Partnership to help us celebrate our anniversary in style.
We meet every Thursday evening.
In summer we dance outdoors, giving displays at some of the many pubs from the Swansea Valley to the Gower Peninsula. In addition we dance at folk festivals, fetes, weddings, ceilidhs, barbecues etc.
In winter we practice at the Sacred Heart Community Centre in Morriston.
At Christmas time we keep alive another old local tradition called Mumming. We perform the Gower mummer’s play and Crwmpyn John, a Swansea Valley play. We use this as an opportunity to collect for local charities.
New members are always welcome either as dancers or musicians.
