So tonight brought our first rehearsal on our new night. For the last few years, we have practiced on Mondays but changes in lives and made for a necessary change. We also got a great deal of work done n our newest and probably most challenging dance ion our present repertoire.
Bluejay, or Belligerent Bluejay as originally titled, is a curious creature amongst Morris dances. it is only one of two that I am aware of that was originally created here in the United States and has been imported in a reverse fashion into England. Created by the Basset Street Hounds up in Syracuse, New York, our version was adapted and modified by Boggart’s Breakfast and then returned home across the Atlantic. Quite a terrific little dance, with no room for error.
We look forward to performing it next season!
