PENNYROYAL GARLAND DANCERS are a group of enthusiastic folk dancers based in north-west
Leicestershire. We currently perform two main styles of dance, GARLAND and CLOG
dances. As there is not really a traditional folk costume in England (unlike the
national dress in Scotland and Wales) we have developed our own outfit of a red blouse
and a blue pinafore dress. For garland dancing we wear red tap shoes. Many traditional
dancers wear bells but PENNYROYAL think the sound of our feet (emphasised by the
taps on our shoes) is better accompaniment for our style of dancing than the bells
worn by Morris dancers.
