Hesk What exactly is Morris dancing? (52* d) RE: What exactly is Morris dancing? 24 Apr 15


Just to kick off, it was practiced in England in the sixteenth century and before. It was considered a vulgar dance of village tradition. It almost disappeared in the mid nineteenth century, until revived by Cecil Sharp and his friends. He published a number of books on the subject, and most of the Morris dances of today stem from his practice and researches. I hope that others may now elaborate on the above.
