|Barn dances or ceilidhs are usually
danced to traditional folk music. They are very
popular as they are suitable for all ages and
everyone, even absolute beginners, can join in
and have a great time. Because they have such
general appeal, they are excellent for social
events, weddings and fund raising.
It doesn't matter if you have never been to a barn dance before because the caller will explain each dance before the music begins and will continue to help during the dance. It's not difficult to do and after all, the aim is to have fun.
|Hot Punch is a band based in
Preston, Lancashire. Some members of the band
play for the Royal Preston Morris Dancers and
have played for morris or barn dance bands for
longer than anyone cares to admit. We have our
own caller, but if you want to organise your own
then that's fine. We will provide the necessary
PA equipment for the event.
A venue for a barn dance could be a village or school hall, hotel, marquee or even a barn. Anywhere you have enough space to dance.
