Looking sharp on dancefloor
FANCY a go at sword dancing?
The tradition goes back hundreds of years and can be found in the traditions of many European countries.
It involves a team of dancers working together in a circle and performing a number of movements during which dancers either go over or under one of the swords.
The dance normally finishes with the making and displaying of the sword lock, with the swords interwoven in one of a variety of shapes.
It keeps you fit, keeps an ‘age old’ tradition alive, and you can make friends, have a good time & perhaps a pint or three may be indulged in.
If your curiosity is piqued enough to want to find out more then the Southport Swords are having a ‘free taster session’ on Saturday (February 18) in the Studio at The Atkinson from 1pm until 4pm.
All comers are welcome to come & give it a try.
No experience is necessary.
