Meet some of our Eldritch tribe…..
Laetitia – Founder Member- Main Teazer
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. Laetitia has choreographed dances for the ‘Oss and Teazers and also rides her ‘Oss Morvargh, who appears alongside Penkevyll or when she is not available.
Laetitia has Diplomas in Counseling, Beauty and Holistic Therapies, teaches Reiki courses and works alongside Cassandra as a Wise Woman. For more information see her Website
Cassandra – Former ‘Oss Teazer & Founder Member- Guardian and owner of Penkevyll the ‘Oss – Percussionist
Cassandra brings to the team 20 years experience of ‘Obby ‘Oss teazing and has a background in community theatre. She is a Dartington Honours Graduate and her profession is Wisewoman of St Buryan. She is a recent author of a book published by Mandrake of Oxford. See her Website for more details.
Following her retirement in 2010 Cassandra started to learn to Morris dance at the age of 61! She lives in her traditional Cornish 200 yr old cottage with Laetitia. She also loves a pint of good cider. If any male misbehaves they receive the “genital shriveling look” which has brought men to their knees!
Scarlet – 1st 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 also a talented tattoo artist and has an inquiring mind.
Sally – 2nd Apprentice Teazer
Sally is in her 40s and is an accountant. She has history in dancing and is also enthusiastic about Tai Chi. Sally enjoys her new life as Teazer, loves the anarchic energy and is also a wild party animal who introduced Laetitia to Tarquins Gin! She has an infectious cackle that can be heard for miles!
