Learning the Dances

When we started, we needed something simple, so we chose a Tinner’s Rabbit, which is still our warm-up dance. Soon after, we added Bear Down Man and September 4th. These have become our base dances.

Within a week we had sticks to play with, and yes, you get very possessive about your own stick! Hats came later, each to their own, but we raided every source of hats old and new we could think of.

By the end of our first year of dancing out we hope to have added a few more dances and to have a decent repertoire so that our audiences don’t just see the same dances over and over again!

We are just having so much fun!
