Who we are

We are Penny Smith, June Pryor, and Barbara Wigg (nee Owers), long time of Duke's Dandy, based in Retford, north Nottinghamshire (although Barbara commutes from nr Sheffield), and Sue Jenkinson, Lynette Eldon and Wendy Bolton, once (and sometimes still) of Green Ginger, a clog side from around Hull/Grimsby area.  And there is also Jill Blackwell, who used to dance with Charnwood Clog in Leicestershire.  So we bring a rich experience of clog dancing to share with each other.

Duke's Dandy no longer holds classes, but the team comes together every so often for a practice and for performances.  They have been greatly assisted by their very experienced musician, Ken Watson from Grimsby, on the melodeon, and Bernard Blackwell on accordion, who are often joined by Barbara and David Wigg or Jim Eldon on fiddle.

At times, members of the team can be found giving workshops in clog dancing or individual displays here and there. 

Lynette and Wendy continue working in a school in Scunthorpe on a clog dance and music project.
