Practice Sessions / Workshops

Ryburn 3 Step has, throughout its existence, been committed to helping people discover their abilities to sing, to dance, to play and to understand the richness of the folk and traditional culture which has defined our lives over the centuries and continues to do so in the modern world.

To this end, we offer a range of activities both regular and occasional to help people of all ages learn something new, get some exercise or just have a good time in a pleasant social setting.

Weekly workshops / practice sessions – at 103 Oldham Road – presently suspended:
: Appalachian step dancing;
Wednesday: Traditional Longsword dancing;
Thursday: Singing.

Fortnightly – at 103 Oldham Road: “No Pressure Tune Session”, 8.00 – 9.45pm.

Workshop Days:
There have been dozens of workshop days over the years. People have gathered together to learn tunes, learn an instrument, sing, write or accompany songs, or learn a style of dancing – clog, flat footing and more. Our last one was on the topic of hornpipes, in November 2018.

For more information phone 01422 822569 (dancing) or 01422 822413 (singing) or 01422 823099 (playing).
