Welcome to The Maypole Manual website. If you have a copy of The Maypole Manual, you’ll already be well versed in the basics of Maypole Dancing, and are now ready for more… In time, this site will hold additional teaching resources, photos, images and more to supplement the book. Please bear with us – this is a work in progress and will be gradually updated over the coming months. We would love to include photos of Maypole Dancers in action around the country (even the world?!), so please send us your pics along with permission for us to display them in our gallery.

If you don’t yet have a copy of The Maypole Manual, and are looking for ways to get Maypole Dancing started in your school or community, this is the site for you. Buy our book and CD and you’ll be up and running in no time. Need to buy a Maypole too? No problem. Send us a message and we’ll point you in the right direction. Alternatively, you can order directly from Educational Aids, the UK’s main stockist of Maypoles and related products.

And finally, if you’ve stumbled across this page unwittingly, welcome to the colourful world of Maypoles! Buy a copy of The Maypole Manual and get started!
