This year, as well as displays from Cornish dance teams and Cornish dances to join in with, we’ll have invited guests “Swing Out West” so you can try your hand at Swing dancing as well!!

From 3 to 6pm on the same day you’ll also have the opportunity to take part in a workshop with Ben Dunks looking at dancing for the stage including posture and presentation.
