Ny Fennee is a dynamic, young dance group founded in 1980 which is based in the North of the Island. Under the leadership of Juan Garrett, the group has worked to evolve traditional dances along new lines. Ny Fennee performs regularly at the Island’s festivals and hosts its own youth festival, Shennaghys Jiu, each Easter. Dancers have travelled to Galicia and Brittany in recent years. Ny Fennee means ‘The Heroes’ in Manx Gaelic.

The group is constantly refreshed with young dancers from local Ramsey schools which means that Ny Fennee’s energy sets new standards for Manx dance performance/
