Over the last few years year we’ve been overwhelmed by the number of dancers supporting us at our shows with over 150 dance groups with more than 2000 dancers displaying before and after the show.
We’ve collected as much information as we can on the groups and posted them in this special section of our website. Please come down early to support future displays!

We are Anonymous Morris: the finest border morris side in the Poole Old Town area! During the summer we can be found dancing on Poole Quay, outside local pubs, and at many weekend events including folk festivals. We often run workshops at such events.
We dance a mixture of traditional and more modern dances. We welcome dancers of any experience level (including none) and musicians playing any acoustic instrument. We rehearse on Thursday evenings (September to June) from 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm at St James Church Hall, Thames Street, Poole, BH15 1JN.
Please see our website for further details.
Think Morris dancing is all bells and hankies? Think again. Welcome to the Dark Side: http://www.beltaneborder.co.uk/. With dynamic dancing, earthy percussive music and miles of fishnet, Beltane put on an exciting show.

Fiddle ‘n’ Feet
‘Fiddle ‘n’ Feet mixed Appalachian dance team, was formed over 15 years ago. We are based in Shipley West Yorkshire.
We perform mainly at festivals and events. We choreograph our own dances using traditional steps and music from the Appalachian mountains. Fiddle ‘n’ Feet are always very well received at any display and we aim to give a performance with plenty of fun and energy.
We have a talented line-up of musicians who are an integral part of the team. Fiddle players Mac and David. Guitarists Paul and Andy. Rita, mandolin and Tony, banjo plus bass!’
Back in 2009 group of like-minded individuals sat and pondered;
Were jelly babies really better than Fox’s Dark Glacier mints? Whose turn was it to buy the cake and coffee? Was London Pride really nearly, but not quite, as nice as Adnams Broadside? Where should you put the apostrophe
in St James’ Hill? Was our favourite colour Magenta 7 or Magenta 8?
Thus were born Pedants’ Revolt. Inspired by a border team from the dark side of the A14, Pedants’ soon had a repertoire of 3 or 4 dances. We now have over a dozen dances, some learnt from other teams, some of our own devising.
