We are a women's traditional English dance team from Portland, Oregon. Our dances are all variations on English Garland dancing, a form of dance that uses arches, decorated with ribbons and flowers, formed into patterns by the motions of dance.
Several of our dances originated from our tour to England in August, 2005 when we joined the Chesterfield Garland Dancers, our sister team in England.
We dance at local events and festivals, beginning with May Day festivities and continuing into the fall, sometimes in the company of BridgetownMorris Men, Renegade Rose Morris, and Iron Mountain Sword.
2014 marks the 19th year of Wild Rose Garland Dancers.
