And you thought it was just for blokes:-
But no, you will find them at the “New Esperance Morris, who have regularly weekly morris dancing sessions.
This is from their site:-
“New Esperance Morris have been continuing the tradition of women’s morris dancing in London since the 1960s. We draw on a rich heritage, specifically that of Mary Neal, and the Espérance Club. We dance Cotswold Dances in the traditions of Bledington, Fieldtown and our own tradition”
As a cyclist from Kent, I come across loads of these over Bank Holidays and they’re often blocking the road!
I used to know a couple of them at work and they often used to get teased. But to be honest, it is part of our heritage, and it would be a shame to lose our traditions, even if they can be a bit cringeworthy. I always wished we had something Irish Dancing with looks a lot more attractive.
It sounds a good laugh though.
