The Buttercross Belles

Join the Buttercross Belles


The Buttercross Belles are a women's dance team. Interested in joining?

No experience needed, just enthusiasm and a liking for tea and cakes......and the occasional beer!

Although we dance throughout the year, we start the new year's recruiting and teaching in September so that new members have the chance to learn dances through the winter for the upcoming season. We will then unleash you on the general public once you feel confident and capable and the squire and dance teacher agree to give you the go ahead.

Dancers and Musicians meet from 7:45pm - 9:45 pm on a Thursday evening.


We have a dedicated band of musicians whose instruments include several Melodeons, Violins, and Recorders, plus Percussion. The music is primarily traditional folk tunes which compliment our style of dance.

Many of our dancers are part of the band, and when not dancing in the set, accompany the dances.

When to join

Please contact us at any time through the year. Practice and the learning of new dances for the up and coming season starts in September each year, so this is the best time to join.

Cost of joining

All dancers pay a share of the hire of the practice hall (in two instalments) as well as membership to the Open Morris.

The cost of the kit is met by the dancer herself.

Musicians pay a reduced contribution.
