The Horn Dance

The reindeer antlers of the Abbots Bromley horn dance are proven to be about nine hundred years old. To see the horn dancers emerge from darkness to weave the dance and quietly knock the horns together never fails to enchant audiences with the sheer mystery and antiquity of the dance.

From the dawn of time and across the globe, men dancing with antlers have enacted the mystery of the hunt, the sympathetic magic of the sacrifice, the cycle of life, and the rebirth of the sun.
