Have a Go at Morris Dancing: 18 September

Joe and Dan

On Saturday 18 September 2021 we invite you to join us to have a go at Morris dancing. All are welcome, regardless of age or ability, although a basic sense of rhythm is helpful!

We will give an introduction to Cotswold Morris, the style of dance performed by Dartington Morris Men. We will cover a little about the history of Morris dancing and give examples of Morris and other traditions that we perform, including the Mummers Play. There will be a chance for you to have a go as well.

Dartington Morris Men once again hosted their annual Day of Morris Dancing in Totnes on Saturday 11 September 2021.

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

Four invited guest sides joined Dartington Morris Men for a great day out, starting at 11am and finishing at around 3pm.

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 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.
