Our Dances

Kemp’s Men dance “Cotswold Morris” taking the dance steps and many of the tunes from the village sides that are still found in the Cotswolds today.  

Norwich, of course, is not in the Cotswolds – but we do have our own tradition and dance it proudly alongside the rest.

“We don’t guarantee to perform all of the dances all of the time, but we will dance all of them some of the time, or even some of them all of the time!”
