Miscellany: Jet Set were formed in 1999 with the intention of bringing traditional Border Morris to our area – the moors and coastline between Whitby and Saltburn – with a few minor changes.Our dances are based on local folklore and centre around the town of Whitby, a place steeped in legend and tradition, from Hilda the Sorceress, to Caedmon, the first English poet. We retain the ideals and dance style of traditional Border Morris, and use the short long-stick in all of our dances. We dance a lively step-hop, making our dances fun to dance and to watch. Some of our dances are brought to us through members who have been in other sides, and some dances we’ve written ourselves.
