Mark Jones Virtual Day of Dance

Ouse Washes Molly Dancers are proud to present our first ever Virtual Mark Jones Day of Dance 2021 on Saturday 30th January 2021

Watch the show live on Facebook from 11am

This event also supports Help Musicians UK.

Broom Dance competition
We have 10 entries to the broom dance competition and the celebrity judges are Simon Care, Sue Marchant and Gordon Phillips. Simon Care is the head judge and will have the casting vote if there is a tie for first place. The audience can vote for their favourite dance on a poll in a specially created Facebook group. Details of how to join the group are on OW’s Facebook page. The audience vote will count towards the final scores. We have the celebrity judges votes already and the competition can still be won by any of the competitors so it is well worth voting. Simon Care will be playing a set of tunes during the time when the audience are casting their votes. The winner of the broom dance competition will be announced after the event on OW’s Facebook page.

Gordon Phillips, founder of Ouse Washes Molly Dancers, says:
This event has become the largest get-together of molly teams in the country, but we didn’t aim for that in the beginning.  We thought back then, don’t remember exactly when, that it would be good to have a day in mid-winter when we danced in the places that it all comes from, or one of them, and get together with those friends we didn’t dance with anymore.”
