We will use wooden swords but in Yorkshire, England the implement is more sword-like, being single-handled, and rigid and called a longsword. The dance is basically six or eight people in a circle, each holding the end of his neighbor's sword. They perform circling and intertwining “figures” without breaking the circle or letting go the swords, except at the climax of the dance when the swords are interlocked to form the “lock” which is then held aloft.
