I spent a lot of time at the East Anglian Folk Festival watching the step dancing and got invited to play for a few dancers. I have always been a dancer and always wanted to tap dance. Seeing the style of dance that the mainly self taught Essex and East Anglian Gypsy dancers were doing, with no rules, or styles, did get me off my bum for about five minutes to have a go. Now I have started ,I shall finish, but I may be some time.
Great fun ,great characters , they were all at the Fish and Chip shop
tapping away on the tiled floor just before I left to consume my bag and drive home.
Are we going to knock em dead Lizzie, next year?

No idea what that Facebook stuff may be, but the most amazing dancing I've seen lately was Hannah James clogging at Whitby. She has several YouTube videos that you can view without signing up to a cult.

This is one of the dances she did at Whitby (not well filmed here):

I'd never imagined the second tune (Les Poules Huppees) being danced to like that.

Perhaps a clone could change this to English Traditional Dancing. There are many traditions out there, and represented on Mudcat.

Traditional dancing hits an untraditional venue...

Turkish Black Sea dance in a German McDonalds

I wonder what a McD's in the UK would make of rappers or cloggies doing the same?

Well, the original clip (on Facebook) is decidedly NOT English, so contributing whatever flavor you like to the thread ought to be appropriate.

Here's the original marengue-dancing dog on YouTube. The dog is quite good.

Teeheee....That's the lassie, Becky! :0) Thanks for putting another link in. I'd forgotten the other would only open in Facebook. Isn't she wonderful!

Ha! Alan..me, traditional dancing???? That's made me giggle even more than Miss Marengue on that link! :0)

I do however do Most Untraditional Shimmying to 'Street of Dreams' by those Gorgeous Oysters ;0) (Mine's a Plaice and Chips please, Alan, with a cuppa tea to wash it down)

And now, back to Meringue Dancing...

(Yeah, Joe...I hear you..."Lizzie! Get Thee to Thy Naughty Steppe yet AGAIN!") :0)

On a more serious note,it is lovely to see well trained dogs do these sort of tricks, but most dogs have hip dysplasia or OCD and this has to be checked out if you wish to teach your dog to do this.
We have English Setters they do not do tricks, they just flop about.

Alan, where's the chip shop? We couldn't find one so went to Macdonalds at the services on the way home.
I tried stepdancing...I look like I'm jogging on the spot rather than dancing....I've got no rhythm me.

Jack, rapper dancers specialise in dancing in unusual venues - cafe, shoe shop, pizza take-away, train, narrowboat, church tower...Kingsmen/Sallyport could add many, many more!

LDT The Fish and Chip shop, from memory is in Regent Road which is near the Station on the ring road other end from the festival in a back street, but is signposted with a big sign near the traffic lights.
Very nice it was too.

Mike I have no problems with my knees, but my back muscles do not like it one bit. As soon as it starts to get better I have another go at it.
I am going to Frittenden at the end of the month with Will Fly and I hope my dancing instructor will be there.
Rock ,Jazz Jiving (Eel Pie Island Style), Ballroom including some Latin American, French Traditional, but Tap and step dancing I have never mastered. It is my loss and back permitted I shall sort it.
Now Lizzie about that dance?
Al
