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.
