Garland Dancers

Saying it with flowers in Chesterfield. . .

. . are a group of women dancers who perform clog and garland dances in the North West tradition. The dance style originates from the millworkers of the industrial revolution.

We are proud to uphold tradition in keeping alive dances that are over a century old. We also develop new dances, such as our dance inspired by our home town of Chesterfield.

We dance at well-dressings, carnivals, festivals, fetes, outside pubs, at residential homes and at stately homes. You will notice us wearing our brightly coloured dresses and embroidered aprons. We are accompanied when we dance by a live band of musicians.

If you’re looking for a way to keep fit and have fun, then please do get in touch and find out more about us. We practise at the Methodist Church Hall, Jawbones Hill, Derby Road, Chesterfield, S40 2EN, on Tuesday evenings 7.30 – 9.30 pm, September to April. You’re welcome to come along and see what’s involved and give it a try for free for the first couple of sessions. If you play a musical instrument, we also welcome new band members.

Please get in touch before you come along in case we’ve given ourselves a night off!
