Ryburn 3 Step Dance, December 2019
Ryburn 3 Step is a not-for-profit independent folk development group which organises a range of regular activities and special events in and around the Ryburn Valley, near Halifax, West Yorkshire, England.

We are a group of amateur, semi-professional and professional folk musicians, singers and dancers living in and around the valley, and we call ourselves “3 Step” because we cover Song, Music and Dance – past, present, and future – within the Folk Music tradition.

In the past, we have organised a variety of activities within the area including:

  • A monthly series of Folk Club nights (September – June)
  • A regular programme of Barn Dances
  • An Appalachian Step dance group
  • A traditional Yorkshire Longsword dance team (Wednesdays)
  • A Singing Group
  • A seasonal Mummers play
  • Workshops and occasional Folk days
  • Pub music sessions
  • Promoting folk arts in schools and local organisations, in and beyond the region
