Flamborough Sword Dancers - Boxing Day 2017
Boxing Day we went over with Don, Barbara, Charles and Tania to see the Flamborough Sword Dancers perform around their home village. With origins in the local fishing community, the team wear appropriate dark blue fishermens jerseys with white trousers- even some of the dance moves are said to be derived from threading actions used when making and reparing their fishing nets. The local children are taught the moves at school in order to pass the tradition on to the next generation They performed with wooden swords outside the cafe near the lighthouse and at the Rose & Crown pub. A fun day out was had by all and here are some pictures to prove it!!!
