Artist Details

Black Swan Rapper

A flash of red, blue and gold as Black Swan Rapper spin, cut inside and tumble, stretching every sinew and pushing themselves harder, higher and faster, as they strive to get to the bar. They shun the limelight, preferring to hone their skills purely for the pleasure of the dance and the feel of the swords in their hands. Black Swan claim to be the most traditional team in rapper dance due to ancestral connections to both the first Kingsmen and the Tyzack family. Look out for their trademark loose sashes and untucked shirts as they attempt some of the most challenging figures in sword dance using the rapper purists’ fixed handle swords. Please encourage them in the traditional manner, throw underwear at them, or even applaud the youthful exuberance that moves audiences to cry ‘You get your money’s worth with this lot.’
