Introduction

[Group Photograph, Bailey Hill, Mold]

Our purpose is to share our enjoyment of our traditional dances and music, to spread the knowledge about them locally, nationally and internationally, and to share our enthusiasm with anyone who cares to watch, listen or join in with us!

Welsh folk dance has a broad tradition to call on - from fair dances to those of the gentry, from the intricate pattern to the virtuoso stepping, from the intimate to the gregarious - a complexity which is perhaps an expression of our culture.

Dawnswyr Delyn are no strangers to the large arena, the grand stage, the camera, the park, the barn or the street. Our guiding principle is to give of our best, wherever we perform.

Since our formation in 1986 we have represented our town, district, and country at various national and international festivals and competitions, including Galway, Nantes, Amsterdam and Briec. We have crossed the border to England several times too! .... to places such as the National Exhibition Centre and the International Arena at Birmingham. We obtained the First Prize in the dance competition in the 2000 Pan-Celtic Festival in Ireland.

The Eisteddfod is in our blood and amongst our number we have trainers of youth and adult groups and also national adjudicators and winners. The group contains solo performers, small groups, callers and workshop leaders.... all ready to respond to the call!

Meeting times

We meet most Monday nights at 8pm in St. Mary's Church Hall, King Street, Mold, which is opposite the entrance to the bus station (see this location map), except during school holidays. We are always looking for new members, dancers, or musicians - and will always welcome anyone who would just like to see what it's all about and do some social dancing!
