After a year’s hiatus, the Bowen Island Black Sheep gathered at the Causeway for the Morris dancing tradition of dancing up the sun at dawn to ensure a good spring growing season. The members of this volunteer folk dance troupe also threw flowers into the sea in honour of the “lost sheep” who have passed on or are no longer able to dance with us.
There is hope that the Black Sheep will be back again in the future, if more people are interested in reviving this island tradition which is open for anyone to join. Musicians and dancers wanted. Contact us on Facebook or call Bob Doucet at 604 947 0698.
