Dance Information

This reel, Roseberry Ridge, is part of the Cleveland Collection.
Cleveland was an area in the north east of England. Its name means literally "cliff-land", referring to its hilly southern areas, which rise to nearly 1,500 ft (460 m).
Roseberry Ridge or Roseberry Topping is one of the most enduring symbols of ancient Cleveland.
