Barn Dances

Ryburn 3 Step “Barn Dances” in the Waring Green Community Centre run from October through to April, when we go off to Folk Festivals and occasionally on holiday.
Ryburn Longsword organises occasional “Village Family Dances” in the Victoria Hall, Ripponden.

Dancers of all ages and abilities are welcome, the main requirement is enthusiasm!
