Traditional Dance Styles

Traditional dancing in the eastern counties includes social dance (“country” dancing) and informal solo dances – stepdancing and broom dancing. There is little evidence for morris dancing in Suffolk and Norfolk, although in the 1930s a localised version, “Molly” dancing was observed and described. This was practised in the Fens of east Cambridgeshire and west Norfolk and is now danced by many teams across the UK.
