Amazing that Americans love Manx dancing!

Dear Kelly:

I wanted to share with you the new dance that the teenagers, "And Sometimes Y", have mastered.  They were invited to perform at the Marlboro Ale in Brattleboro, Vermont last Saturday, and they did a fantastic job.  They performed in front of 15 teams of dancers (Morris, long sword, rapper, and Northwest clog) and about 500 general audience members, and everyone was impressed with the Manx dances.  The feedback that I've received is that folks want to know more about Mann. The second dance is by And Sometimes Y"

Here is a video of their show dance on Elliot Street.  They selected Gorse Sticks, a difficult jig, and I think that they did fine.


This troupe is based in Massachussetts.
