Coronavirus update (July 2021)

Dartington Morris Men resumed (socially distant) outdoor practices in May and we have started dancing out again, by agreement with the respective venues and where it is safe to do so.

We will be performing at Bridport Folk Festival in August and Dartmouth Regatta Family Fun Day later that month. Other events are flexible, adapting to changing circumstances as we go, but you can see in our list of events what's currently planned.

Dartington Morris Men

If you would like to know a little about Dartington Morris Men, when and where we dance, how we dance and why we dance, then you're in the right place - our online calendar is kept right up to date. We also have a photo gallery and a fine collection of sheet music for traditional tunes; and you can listen to samples from our very own CD, which you can order online for quick delivery.

New members welcome - no experience necessary!

Practising at the school

Have you ever thought of joining a Morris side? Well Dartington Morris Men are looking out for new male dancers! We are a very friendly bunch and we welcome new dancers at any time of the year - but our practice season is the best time to start. We welcome beginners on Fridays starting in October, although they are welcome any time. Our practice sessions are most Friday nights, 8pm to 10pm, and run from October to the end of April.

2019 Day of Dance in Totnes, Saturday 14 September

Dartington Morris Men hosted our annual Day of Morris Dancing in Totnes on Saturday 14 September 2019 and we all have a great time, dancing up and down the town to appreciative audiences.

This event was open to all local Morris sides from the Open Morris, Morris Federation, and Morris Ring and formed a Joint Morris Organisation Local Day of Dance.

Eight local sides performed, starting at 11am and finishing at around 3pm.

On display was a mixture of Cotswold Morris, North West Clog, Border Morris and North Skelton Longsword.

The new CD 'A Job Lot' by Dartington Morris Men was released in September 2014.

It was produced to coincide with our Morris Ring meeting on September 5-7 2014 and is available for sale from us when you see us out and about.
