Triskele Sword Sheffield

Triskele Sword of Sheffield perform the Rapper sword dance, which is traditional to the coal fields of Northumberland and County Durham.
The rapper is a fast lively dance and is often best seen in a confined space where the interaction of the characters with the audience and the dancers adds to the excitement.
Triskele Sword, a mixed-gender team, formed in 2000 specifically to host and perform at DERT 2002. DERT (Dancing England Rapper Tournament) is the successor to the formal competitions of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. DERT brings together dancers from all over the world, both socially and competitively. The event stimulates innovation and excellence in performance which in turn has led to a thriving and developing tradition. website created by atumstudios Triskele Sword Sheffield - Rapper dance troop Triskele Sword Sheffield - Rapper dance troop Triskele Sword Sheffield - Rapper dance troop Triskele Sword Dancing Sheffield
