Workshop – Fieldtown Jig – ‘Ladies’ Pleasure’ – Owain Boorman (LIVE on Zoom)
Sunday 30 January, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Workshop – Fieldtown Jig – ‘Ladies’ Pleasure’ – Owain Boorman
Owain Boorman will teach the Cotswold morris jig – ‘Ladies’ Pleasure’ or ‘Ladies of Pleasure’ – in the style of Fieldtown. This follows on from the Nutting Girl jig in the style of Fieldtown from the Jig Instructional.
The Jig and workshop will bridge the gap between beginner and intermediate and will be suitable for most dancers who know how to double step, and those who attended our beginners Cotswold workshop last year.
The workshop will be led by Owain Boorman accompanied by his long suffering partner, musician Rimini Dick-Carr.
Owain Boorman started dancing with Mad Jack’s Morris in Hastings in 2005, since then he has danced with King John’s, Red Stags, Whitchurch, and Chiltern Hundreds. He is also a founding member of Clausentum and has been foreman since their inception.
Rimini Dick-Carr is a classically trained musician who has played with Aylesbury Concert Band, Bucks County Youth Orchestra and many other bands within the area. Owain has depended on Rimini for music during lockdown for the previous instructional and online videos. Due to uncertainty in the current climate, Rimini has fortunately offered up her services again.
