Dawnswyr Blaenafon


Dawnswyr Blaenafon

Dawnswyr Blaenafon is a group of people who like to learn and maintain traditional Welsh dance and dances from other traditions, and have fun at the same time.

We meet at the iconic Blaenavon Workmen's Hall  on Thursday evenings 7.15 pm to 9 pm.

New members are welcome at any time and no experience is necessary, we will guide you through.

We also organise the highly successful Dawns ar y Mynydd / Dance on the Mountain dance festival. This is held in July each year in Blaenavon. The Fesival includes demonstrations of dance of all styles. Follow the link to the festival web site to find out what is happeining.

Once a month we also hold a Valleys Folk dance Night ( Ceilidh, Ceili, Twmpath or Barn dance). See our Facebook page for details..
