Add a little colour and a lot of music to your little ones’ lives! Miss Molly’s Maypole – Dancing for Kids features a height-adjustable maypole, colourful ribbons, live piano accordion music and percussion instruments for kids to tap away on. No experience is necessary: just a few kids, a little energy and a camera provide a fun, memorable activity. Kids will develop a greater appreciation of dance and music and develop some social skills at the same time.

Miss Molly and her Maypole

Maypole dancing has a rich history throughout Europe and has diversified into many different styles. Join Miss Molly and her helpers for a fun maypole dance experience and learn how to create colourful patterns on the maypole. Have a go at the energetic Barber’s Pole or be challenged by a more elaborate Austrian-inspired Bandltanz, where kids and adults weave a creative pattern around the pole. You could try ‘spinning’ a Spider’s Web or just join in with some percussion to live accordion music.

We are also known as Maypole with Molly and are happy to be advertised as such or Miss Molly’s Maypole.

All ages are welcome, so come along and do some Maypole with Molly.

Our next gig is at the Illawarra Folk Festival on Friday January 15 to Sunday January 17 2016 at Bulli Showground.

Friday at 11:45, Saturday at 11:30 and Sunday at 4:15
