Ragged Crow Morris Dancers are offering a series of three, one and a half hour workshops on getting started in morris dancing one of the oldest continuing English traditions.
Morris dancing is not a competitive dance, we enjoy 'strutting our stuff' so we only dance in public when we know that we can put on a great performance.
If you have a sense of rhythm, as sense of humour and enjoy good company why not Give it a Go at our series of workshops on April 30, May 7 and 14.
At the end of the workshop series there may be an opportunity to join Ragged Crow.
No one knows where morris dancing originated, all that can be said is that it is very old and has had many influences.
Ragged Crow dance two different morris traditions; one from the Cotswold region based on dances that were collected in the early 20th century and one from the Welsh Border region which are mainly contemporary dances based on an old tradition.
