Laetitia – Founder Member- Main Teazer – Musician (Melodeon)
Laetitia danced with Border Morris team Wolf’s Head & Vixen Morris in Kent from 1999. During her final year she held the position of Foreperson teaching Vixen Morris dances.
She trained with Cassandra as ‘Oss Teazer since 2009 and it was at Chepstow Wassail in January 2017 that Cassandra handed over her ‘snapper’ and the position of Teazer. In Boekka she has choreographed dances for the ‘Oss and Teazers and also rides her ‘Oss Morvaugh, who appears when Penkevyll is not available. You can read about her here:
Laetitia has qualifications in Counselling, Beauty and Holistic Therapies and also works alongside Cassandra as a Wise Woman.

She lives happily in a traditional Cornish 200 yr old cottage with Laetitia. She also loves a pint of good cider Cornish Orchard Gold is her favourite. If anyone is too naughty they will get the “anatomy shrivelling look” which can bring men to their knees!
Scarlet – Apprentice Teazer
Laetitia’s Apprentice Teazer is in her 30s and we have known her for some time. She understands the energy of the ‘Osses and the importance of good performance and detail. We look forward to seeing her progression. She is a talented artist and has an enquiring mind.
Kevin Godley – Oss Rider
We acquired a new ‘Oss rider at The All Hallows Gathering Boscastle 2016. Kevin is a quiet, thoughtful man with an inner strength which came through when he rode Penkevyll for the first time at short notice. He is also a Morris dancer. We welcome him with open arms to Boekka.
