More about Barn Dance Bands

A Barn Dance for your Wedding in Cumbria

A Barn Dance is one of the best entertainments for your Cumbria Wedding. It gets both sides of the family and friends to interact and the volume is such that people can still talk to each other and catch up with whatever they want to catch up with. (Unlike when there's a disco on the go!) Anyone can do it, young or old, experienced or never done it before, either dancing or just looking and listening.

Normally the Barn Dance Band would do the first dance for a Wedding Ceilidh, whether in Cumbria or some other part of the UK. The barn dance gets going well that way. Some couples prefer to start doing a waltz then invite guests to join in. Some couple like the band to play a CD of pop music, provided by them, for their first dance, then move into the Barn Dance proper. That works well too.

The band normally get the dance going by playing a tune or two to get people 'in the mood'. Then get EVERYONE up for a first dance WITH the couple. No one can refuse, because it would be rude to the Couple. So, even those who are a frightened to try it, get up for the first dance. The band make sure that it is a very easy dance, so that even those who are shy of dancing find they can actually do it, and that it is great fun. But it really is up to you which way things start.

Barn Dance Bands have a caller, who teaches the dances, so even people who have never been to a Ceilidh before can do it. They would possibly include any dances from the Cumbria area that were in the band’s repertoire. Normally there is be a break half way through the barn dance for a hog roast or buffet, so people can stump up some more energy for the second half. If there are some experienced dancers, they might include some harder dances for them, but all in all make sure that everyone is involved and having a good time.

All Barn Dances are similar in that there is a caller to organise the dancing, but the style of music and dance can be different depending on whether the band is playing American or English music or a little of everything and whether held in Cumbria or some other part of the country.

About Cumbria

Darlington began as an Anglo-Saxon settlement on the River Skerne which is a northern tributary of the Tees. The town was later taken by the Danes and there are still many place names of Viking origin in its vicinity. Since Norman times Darlington has been a borough and the site of an important market and today it is arguably the `capital' of southern County Durham with its population of over eighty thousand much greater than that of Durham City. However, Darlington is no longer officially part of the County of Durham except in historical terms.
