Stepdancing is a form of dancing that taps out rhythms with the feet, and is one of many old traditions on Dartmoor. This kind of dancing, which at one time existed all over England, with regional and local variations, is one of the roots of modern tap dancing.
This website is about the music, the steps, the people and the history and would love to hear your memories and recollections. It was created by the TAKING STEPS Project in 2017
OCTOBER 2017 We are in the process of creating a new organisation to take the work forward after the project ends. Make sure you're signed up to our newsletter to hear about the latest developments.
