These are the dances in the Lexington-in-the-Bluegrass morris tradition. This tradition was initially designed in 2003 and 2004 in Lexington, Kentucky, to be danced by the Squash Beetle Morris Dancers. The tradition and most of the dances were choreographed by Andy Klapper, but many details are the result of collaborative effort by Squash Beetle Morris. In fact, by the time you read this Squash Beetle may be dancing them differently.
As of May 1, 2006 there were 8 dances written directly for the Lexington-in-the-Bluegrass tradition (plus several others adapted from other traditions). They are: Sheaves of Seaweed, White Rocks, Old Shoe, Trigonometry, Hands Across the Pond (a wedding dance for Emily Hendren and James Allright), Square Hey, Little Willie, and Old Kentucky Home. Hook, Line and Sinker, originally written by Andy Klapper for Squash Beetle in the Bledington tradion, has also been adapted to Lexigton-in-the-Bluegrass. Permission to dance these dances (either as written or with modifications) is granted to anyone who wants to dance them. We ask only that you properly attribute their origins when feasible. And if possible let us know that you are dancing them.
