The “Cornish Hospitality” Project 2019

Spring 2019 saw us running a series of workshops to learn 6 of the dances from our new book of dances “Cornish Hospitality”. The ultimate aim of the workshops was to produce a video of each dance that could be used together with the full instructions and dance diagrams to learn the dances.

The dances chosen were Cornish Hospitality, Tandem to Anvil, Carrick Castles, PZ40, The Lass from Brittany and Mrs Carmichael of Okataina.
The link to the videos is here.

To help show the patterns of the dance each couple wears a different coloured top.

This project has been a success for many reasons; the main one being dancers from the length of Cornwall (Liskeard in the East down to Penzance in the West over 60 miles between each group) came to together to enjoy and improve their dancing and to dance with each other, something we do not have an opportunity to do very frequently.

Another series of workshops are planned for this autumn and spring next year to complete the book.
