Published on 15 Jan 2018

A traditional Manx dance, 'Hop-tu-naa', performed by Onchan School.

This was a part of the set of dances performed by the school to become a winner in the 2017 Manx Folk Awards, in the KS2 Balanced Dance Programme class.

The Manx Folk Awards (Aundyryn Kiaull-Theay Vannin) are an informal set of competitions in traditional Manx music, dance and performance.

Organised by Department of Education and Children, Culture Vannin and Manx National Heritage, the Manx Folk Awards are held the last week before the Easter holidays at the Douglas Youth Arts Centre and Trinity Church.

The footage for this film was captured by Ron Corkish.
