Somerstep title

We have two main types of performance: sessions and dance displays.
For a session we will usually be indoors, often in a pub. There will be music, some of which we will dance to.
There might be the odd song or two.
People are encouraged to join in with any of this. The more the merrier.
A dance display is a little more formal. These usually take place outdoors in the summer.
We will usually be accompanying another dance team, taking it in turns to perform.
We frequently end the evening by going inside and having a session anyway.

Our current programme is:
