Dawnswyr Blaenafon

Dawnswyr Blaenafon was formed in the Autumn of 2014 in Blaenavon. Gradually the group grew and “danced out” for the first time for the Blaenavon World Heritage Day Festival of 2015.

In 2017 the team adopted a costume based on the industrial past of Blaenavon. The women wear clothes worn by the brickyard workers and the men’s costume is that of the miners and ironworkers of the town, all from around the early part of the twentieth century.

They perform a mixture of modern and traditional Welsh dances together with some from other Celtic traditions.
