Somerstep title

One of the inspirations which led to SomerStep being formed was discovering that there had been step-dance competitions on the Mendips at some point in the past. Such competitions have survived on Dartmoor, largely due to the efforts of one man, the late Bob Cann, but little is known of their Somerset equivalent.

In an attempt to see what is available and how it might be used, some of SomerStep along with some friends, have started a second series of sessions, concentrating on the tunes collected in the area.

These sessions take place at the Old Inn, Congresbury, on the first Monday of the month, starting around 8.00 pm. All welcome to come and play or try dancing. Les, our most experienced dancer, will be providing coaching for those who want it.
