Photographer's Note

Another dance group performing on the promenade at Sidmouth, as part of the Sidmouth Folk Festival.
These are the Tower Raven Rappers.
An all female rapper dance team based in Central London.
Taking their name from the feathered guardians of the Tower of London, and accompanied by a brazen Beefeater.

Rapper dancing? Rapper sword dancing is a form of traditional dance which comes from the North East of England.
The "swords" (inch wide strips of metal with a handle each end) are used to make intricate locks and patterns, whilst the dancers perform precise and neat stepping combined with fast and exciting movements.

If you look carefully, you might be able to see the 'raven' on the Beefeaters shoulder!
Two more shots in the workshop, to show them in performance.

Thanks for looking.
