Revision as of 11:32, 26 June 2012 by KingAragorn (Talk | contribs)

The Springle-ring was a dance of the Shire-hobbits. It was described as "a pretty dance, but rather vigorous" where dancers leaped up often.[1]

At the Bilbo's Farewell Party the dance was performed by Everard Took and Melilot Brandybuck.[1] The dance is also mentioned in the Bucklandish poem Bombadil Goes Boating, witnessed by the daughters of Farmer Maggot.[2]
