Tower Ravens

Tower Ravens are London’s premier rapper sword dance team. Named after the feathered guardians of the Tower of London, they are accompanied by a brazen Beefeater. Displaying acrobatic prowess and nerves of steel, they’re held together by a love of sword dancing and liquid refreshment.

“But what is rapper dancing?” we hear you say. Rapper sword dancing is a form of traditional dance which comes from the north east of England. The “swords” (inch wide strips of metal with a handle at each end) are used to make intricate locks and patterns whilst the dancers perform precise and neat stepping combined with fast and exciting movements.
