taking our culture forward

As well as the songs, the turnips and the music, Hop tu Naa also has a dance.

We are very pleased to have available a number of films of the dance being performed, including this lovely performance by Onchan School, given as a part of the 2017 Manx Folk Awards.

Instructions for the steps, and the music, are available amongst the download files on this page: Hop tu naa.

Another short film of the dance being performed was captured during The Grand Manx Dance at Tynwald Day 2017, featuring the combined forces of Perree Bane and Skeddan Jiarg:
