Description

Made by one of the school's teachers, this film features pupils country dancing at the High Green Secondary school near Sheffield. The film is taken outdoors on the playing field and the participants are dressed up in traditional folk style costume.

The film opens with female dancers before close ups show the girls dresses and straw hats in detail. Boys then join in, and the camera pulls back to show them dancing together in a group. A crowd is shown clapping as they do the square dance, and extended close ups show the moves as they dance in a line linked together.
