Actually, you'd best telegraph them, because this one is from the 1890s. Maybe write them a long letter. Because that's Morris Dancing I was thinking about.
This Robert Paul short from the 1890s shows people dancing for the clog competition of England -- a dubious distinction for the modern viewer, but the dance form is an ancestor to tap dancing and enjoyed a bit of a vogue in the 1980s, thanks to shows like RIVERDANCE. Although that show struck me as about as interesting as synchronized swimming, this is, as Mr. Paul's catalogue indicates, quite lively and with good music would be quite a bit of fun. The dancers clearly take what they are doing seriously, but enjoy themselves and that pleasure of performance can carry the audience along.
