Workshop – North West – Lockdown Dance for 4 – Chinewrde Morris

‘Lockdown’ is a North West style dance for 4 distanced dancers written by Hazel Old of Chinewrde Morris.  She wrote this dance during the first lockdown, and some of Chinewrde were dancing it outdoors as soon as the guidelines allowed.

Hazel will be teaching the dance in a 1hr 30min session suitable for all, especially for those with some morris experience.  We will warm up with Clare Watters and practice stepping before the dance.  Will Pound will provide the music.

– Skill level: beginner/intermediate

– Equipment required: 2 sticks with bells/wooden spoons/something similar to hold.  Comfortable shoes.

– Space: at least 2 square metres

– Tune: Brighton Camp (musicians welcome, although sorry, you won’t be heard via Zoom)

See links to a video and notation under ‘resources’ below.
