2023 dancing got off to a splendid start with the annual re-enaction of the ‘spat’ between the Dragon and St George which, legend has it, took place in Shropshire’s very own Newport. We were all relieved to see that St George was successful and the Dragon was very definitely slain!
We turned out in full regalia and were delighted to show a range from our repertoire of Mixed, Clog, Lasses and Men’s dances.
Despite prophecies of doom from the Met. Office the weather was kind to us and a wonderful (dry) time was had by all. Unbeknownst to those spectating, this was the first public dance out for two of our number so huge congratulations go to Jacqui and Rebecca for an excellent start to their Morris Dancing careers.
Credit is also due to our intrepid band of wonderful musicians for keeping us in time as well as to how light the men seem to have become over the winter in order to be able to float serenely in the air!!!
