Flash Company were formed in the year 2000 from musicians and dancers from all walks of life. Many had danced traditional Morris for many years and wanted to update the tradition to bring it to a new audience in a manner that people could relate to.
In order to do this, we have taken some ‘traditional’ dances and also written several of our own but perform them to more modern music, such as blues, jazz and rock and roll.
In no way is this meant to detract from the traditional teams that exist all over the world, but we do feel that people can find some familiarity in the music, and will stop to watch and find out more.
Based in Otley, West Yorkshire, we perform at festivals and events across the country – please see our Gigs page for our next appearance.
