gravity is defied

as kerchiefs flutter
swords scrape
sticks clap

and dozens of bells chime with each step

Looks like a mix of several types of dancing - I see Italy and also British Morris Dancing. Such fun, love the words...

I'm like Jilly , I see irish dance and also Basque (south-west of France) dance..What kind of celebration was it?..

Jacob said...

What did you have up there: Dancing by the Stars (of various countries)?

Looks lively and fun and much too strenuous for me. I'm going to have to go sit down now.

I think Ciel has it. Looks like Morris Dancers to me, especially the bottom photo. But, in Brattleboro?!?!

Brilliant action, but gravity always wins in the end.

Sunny said...

Oh no! I missed all the fun!
I'm hoping to be at RiverFest, I really will have a better idea after my next Dr. visit.
Thanks for your concern. I'm getting better, slowly but surely.
