Ridgeway Step Clog was formed in 1998 and meet on Monday evenings in Steventon. We
are a precision dance side demonstrating traditional English Stepping which incorporates
steps that originated in the old Lancashire cotton mills. They perform dances from
several regions including Lancashire, Sunderland, Durham, Wales and Canada. Ridgeway
Step Clog’s very distinctive style is the result of taking these traditional steps
and choreographing the routines and for some of them using props such as garlands,
brooms, sheep and percussion.
The ceilidh starts at 8pm and ends at 11.30pm. There is a licensed bar with real
ales from local breweries and a selection of rolls / sandwiches on sale. Tickets
are £8 (under 16 £4)
