Abstract

Andrew Knight and Lin Steel, with musician Tony Warren, will teach 2 Cotswold morris jigs (solo dance) for those with some experience of Cotswold morris, and also suitable for those who attended our beginners Cotswold workshop in November/December.
 
The dances are ‘Nelson’s Praise’ and ‘Jockey to the Fair’, both in the style of Ilmington.
 
This is being run as a 1 hr 30 minute run through of the Ilmington Style and is open to anyone wanting to give the Ilmington Style a try; particularly suitable as a reminder for those that followed the Nov/Dec workshop on Ilmington. It is hoped that some will take a jig out in the summer of 2021 and perform it in some form if we are able. Whatever your genre of morris adding a Jig is an excellent way to make a contrast in the performance of your side.
 
A desire to learn / better one’s technique / be able to learn from viewing on a screen is desirable.
