The British Isles have a rich history of step dancing of many forms and in many contexts some of which are relatively well known and others largely lost. It is a history which goes back many centuries and links with traditions in other parts of the world. The aim of the conference is to further our knowledge and understanding, 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.
We are now accepting proposals to present at this conference.
The conference committee will select contributions for inclusion and we hope to notify applicants by the end of May 2019.
