Maypole dancing

Here are some photos of Maypole dancing and dancing without the Maypole that happened on May 1st at Camphill Milton Keynes on the grass. Maypole dancing is a ceremonial folk dance performed around a tall pole garlanded with greenery or flowers and often hung with ribbons. The earliest Maypoles were part of a celebration of Summer which would be linked in with mystical things like tree worship and more basic things like an excuse for dancing and having a good time.
