Cut A Shine are a London-based troupe of traditional musicians, dynamic Ceilidh dancers and crazy callers determined to spread the word that the Hoe Down is a’happening. From Hoxton to Humberside, from Amnesty to Bestival, Cut A Shine are putting Ceilidh dance back on the map – whether at sell out London Ceilidh dances or barn dances at top summer festivals.
This "anarchic hillbilly barn dancing squad" host a rip-roaring, thigh-slapping, pavement-stomping, exhilarating, heart thumping, blood pumping barn dance and Ceilidh show. Whilst the banjo and the fiddle set the tone, the callers instruct the audience through do-si-do’s and strip the willows, until all are involved!
Join Square Dance for three days of music and dance in the heart of the city. In the daytime bring your friends and family and join in the dance classes and performances in the Square. Each evening we have live music and heavyweight DJs for your entertainment.
