I'm a MossyBack and I'm OK!
The MossyBacks are well known for their high quality and vigorous dancing.
For the Cotswold traditions we dance, we dress in white shirts and white pants with accent colors of red and black. Red suspenders hold up our pants while rosettes and armbands bring on the color. Most unique are our red shoes, socks and red baseball hats. Ask us about the rest of the kit.
Our headgear can vary from the formal and fancy red bowler to the casual red baseball hat depending on the venue.
For other traditions, such as the Border or Fire dances, you may find us in black tights with colorful raggy coats, and on fine summer 'casual evenings, you may encounter our 'summer kit' - Hawaiian shirts and white pants. And of course... red shoes!
