Stepping On: A Conference on Stepping in Dance across the British Isles and Beyond

Banner (Copyright Vaughan Williams Memorial Library

16 - 17 November 2019

Cecil Sharp House, London, UK

The British Isles have a rich history of step dancing in many forms and in many forms and contexts, spanning centuries and linking with traditions across the world. Some of these dances and their histories are relatively well-known, others largely lost. The aim of the conference is to further our knowledge and understanding in these traditions and to stimulate debate. The conference will be of interest to practitioners, researchers and all who are interested in the diversity of traditional dance in the British Isles.
