What is rapper dancing?

"The Rapper Sword Dance is a tradition which developed in the coalfields of the N.E. of England.
It is one of the more recent forms of traditional dance and also one of the more spectacular.
The team consists of five dancers linked together by holding flexible strips of steel. They perform
intricate patterns and figures at a swift pace which are punctuated by phases of 'stepping'."
