Maypole dancing is a fun activity for all ages to participate in, both in an educational setting such as a school or nursery and for celebrations such as fairs, country shows and even weddings! And it’s fun all year round – not just in May!

Alison Rowley has more than 15 years of experience as a music and dance workshop leader. She has her own full-sized maypole with 24 ribbons, and can either provide a live musician or play exciting recorded music through her PA system.

Alison is based in Bristol but can also run maypole dancing workshops in Somerset, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Dorset, Devon, and beyond!

“I wanted to thank you again for your maypole teaching last week. We had so much positive feedback from pupils and staff and I feel really hopeful that the children will now use the maypole quite regularly during PE, lunch time and school events. The kids all thoroughly enjoyed their lessons – many of them unexpectedly too!! It was lovely to watch a lesson and see how you bought in maths and English into the learning too.”
