Primary Workshops for Schools

Maypole Dance Workshop

Our Maypole Dance workshop aims to bring this celebration to school, complete with a full Maypole! Children will be able to envisage themselves as part of historic days or celebrate the modern May Day.

Around since the mid-14th century, Maypole dancing is traditionally associated with May Day celebrations. Normally celebrating the arrival of spring, children were selected as May Day Queens and Kings and the festivities were celebrated with music, feasting and dancing around a Maypole.

This experience will be one they won’t forget. Maypole dance pairs perfectly with our Morris dance workshops and links to English culture, May Day, St. George’s Day.

For more information on our Maypole Dance Workshop, give us a call on 01536 265432 or email us on [email protected].

Workshop Performance

Workshop & Performance

Workshop Sessions:

Up to 8 sessions

During a typical day-long workshop, Primary Workshops for Schools can work with up to 30 children in a session and deliver 6 sessions, stretching to 8 if required. The workshop can then end with a performance from the children during which they can showcase the traditional routine they’ve learnt throughout the day.
