A traditional May Day dance is Maypole Dancing. But what is it about?
Well, the maypole is a wooden pole that is stuck in the ground with many long coloured ribbons hanging down from the top. It is decorated with flowers and sometimes a May Day garland is put on top of it.
The result of this dancing is a beautiful plaited (=intrecciato) pattern of coloured ribbons around the pole.
Why don’t you watch the video of the Beltane Maypole Dance in Glastonbury?
