- Welcome -
Tower Ravens are London's premier rapper sword dance team.
We take our name from the feathered guardians of the Tower of London, and are accompanied by a brazen Beefeater. We dance out in the city on a monthly pub crawl and attend events and festivals throughout the year.
“But what is rapper dancing?” we hear you say. Rapper sword dancing is a form of traditional dance which comes from the north east of England. The “swords” (inch wide strips of metal with a handle at each end) are used to make intricate locks and patterns whilst the dancers perform precise and neat stepping combined with fast and exciting movements. But rather than reading about it, how about watching some! - check out the Media and Forthcoming Events sections of our website to see us in action.
