THEY’RE pretty sharp the Maltby Phoenix Sword Dancers, who recently performed in U-Dance at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s South Bank.

Maltby Phoenix squire, Paul Davenport, said: “Our team performed with customary vigour and rigour and won the hearts of the audience. It was a wonderful experience for our young dancers.”

The group was singled out to represent the north and north eastern sword dance tradition.

Rachel Elliot, of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, said It simply would not have been the same show without them.
