Thread Name: What exactly is Morris dancing?
Subject: RE: What exactly is Morris dancing?
Women dance morris too. It's display dancing, not social, generally done in groups of 6 to 12, can be very aggressive in actions and gestures, and can be fiercely exciting when well danced. And this is from someone who generally dislikes dance. Some people take it too seriously, others not seriously enough. These days, dancers are generally getting elderly. Till the next lot discovers it, as it tends to come in waves about 30 years long.
