What can I learn?

Morris dance is an energetic, buoyant form of English folk dance performed to lively music in groups or 'sides'. There are many diverse traditions across the country - this class is based on the popular Cotswold tradition in which dancers perform with handkerchiefs and sticks.

Beginners are taught the basics alongside more experienced dancers - this is the traditional way of learning morris as it's more accessible and supportive for beginners. There is great value to be had by learning together, helping each other and working as a team, as well as focusing on individual learning points.
