Abstract

Owain Boorman teaches the Cotswold morris jig – ‘Ladies’ 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 bridgea 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 was led by Owain Boorman accompanied by his long suffering partner, musician Rimini Dick-Carr
