It’s the beginning of a new year and with it comes eisteddfod season for many schools and Urdd clubs in Wales. If you’re thinking about teaching a folk dancing group to compete in this year’s National Urdd Eisteddfod well, the Welsh Folk Dance Society is here to help!

Once again, a YouTube channel has been set up to showcase simple versions of the dances to assist new instructors. You will also notice that the soundtrack for each video includes a longer introduction and ending to enable you to use them as background audio during practices.

Full details about the 2023 Urdd Eisteddfod dances and competition rules are available from the Urdd website.

In the meantime, good luck with the rehearsals and we hope to see you in Carmarthenshire!
