Folk dance goes hand in glove with folk music and is very popular around Bromyard. Both Cotswold and Border Morris sides perform around country pubs in the summer and on special days, such as Boxing Day. Ceilidhs are held in several venues including pubs and village halls. There are Appalachian teams, English Country Dancing clubs and much more throughout the County.

In addition to regular folk dance occasions there is a flurry of dance activity at the annual Bromyard Folk Festival where local dancers are joined by others from around the country including clog, rapper and sword dancers.
