Folk in Motion

Shepherd's Hey

Shepherd's Hey is a traditional Morris dance, danced by a team of six dancers. Dancers would originally have been men, but Cecil Sharp taught men and women to dance a wide range of "men's" dance forms rather than let the dances die out. Every team that dances Shepherd's Hey has their own version, and Folk in Motion is no exception.
