Over 10 years of activity there have been many highlights.  

The Horniman Museum and Laban Institute    Mumming, Maypoles and Music as part of The Big Dance 2012

British Museum    Tudor session linked to their Mexico exhibition 2010

Geffrye Museum, Hughenden Manor and others   bringing their collections to life and providing interactive entertainment and links to local schools

Festivals     Chippenham Folk Festival and the Morpeth Gathering, Oxford Folk Weekend & Wimborne Minster

Schools have provided the backbone of Tradamis’ work for most of its existence with lots of Maypole and Tudors and all the other modules at various times.  

Some of the more unusual projects were:

Bushey Academy (Mike Ruff)  2011,12,13 Y9 History Through Dance

Hanham Abbots School, Bristol  Feb 2013 Linking Tudors to Pilot Morris Hey pack

In previous years we have provided dances and music for various theatrical productions including one that was highly commended at the Shakespeare Schools Festival, taught Morris as part of a Street Dance Fusion project and linked with HMS Victory for songs and dances associated with Trafalgar.
