Tan ha Dowr are a young Cornish dance and music group.

Tan ha Dowr means 'Fire and Water' in Cornish, themes which are reflected in the colour of our costumes.

The group was started up in by young people who were interested in Cornish music and dance, but wanted to do something more exciting and experimental with it, to make it more up to date and relevant for them. The group has expanded and developed throughout the years, but the main reason for its existence has stayed the same; to meet up with friends, to try out Cornish dancing/music, to experiment with these traditions, to have a go at other people's traditional music/dance, to be creative and to have fun!
