We are an established performing group looking to expand our membership. Come and try out this noisy, high-energy folk dance from England. There is nothing delicate about this dance. Strength, rhythm, humor… these things are useful for morris dancing, and are developed. Grace comes through, but is not needed to enjoy this boisterous, even rowdy pastime. Morris is intended for performance - there are no partners or roles based on gender.



Morris dancing is a blast! Here are some of the reasons why it's a blast:

• It's boisterous and loud

• It's athletic and high energy

• You get to wear a costume and show off in public

• It's challenging, but accessible - you can learn the basics and a bunch of dances in a few weeks, and it doesn't take years to master like say martial arts do. Of course you can always keep improving.

• The music is always live, including at practices! No bagpipes, we promise!
