Here's a few clips of Helston Furry Dance through the ages since 1921 . . .



Note the right hand holds and the closeness of the turns as the couples move through the crowds.

Thanks to Dana for the tips on Helston Furry :D



Helston Furry is danced through the streets of Helston with "dignity and joy" every year on May 8th.
