I have been bagman, squire and foreman for Anstey Morrismen, and foreman for Sergeant Musgraves Dance. I also occasionally dance with The Bunnies From Hell. My first side though was, and still is The Hinckley Plough Bullockers.
I would encourage anyone to have a go at Morris dancing. It is a great way to get some exercise and meet lots of very interesting people from all walks of life.
There are numerous traditional morris dances, some of which may go back hundreds of years. New dances in the style are also being composed by various people. I have even put together a few myself. See my dances page for more details.
