Join us!

 

Please note due to Covid-19 our practice sessions are happening via Zoom. Please still contact us if you are interested in our fun and slightly odd activity.

 
We are an inclusive mixed sex side that doesn’t tolerate harassment so anyone that’s happy with that and is interested , enthusiastic and cheerfulish about Morris dancing is welcome to join 🙂 .
 
Dancers
We like to recruit new dancers when we can but it can be tricky over the summer as we are so often dancing out. Instead, we usually have a Open Day in October to welcome people who want to try out the dancing….but as we practice Sunday mornings, 11 – 1, at the Roman Circus Centre in Colchester from October until April. We’re happy if you just turn up to give it a go but might be worth double checking we will be there! We tend not to practice if we danced out on a Saturday and in the summer we may Practice in Crouch street opposite Tesco Express if the weather is good
 
You don’t need experience as we tech the routines.
 
 
Musicials
We are now also looking to add to our merry band of musicians. Do you play an instrument? Fiddle, melodeon, guitar, trombone, spoons? Can you play for a jolly group of dancers who try not to take themselves too seriously? We’d love to hear from you and we can offer you a warm welcome and maybe even a coffee and biscuit. We do run some introductary lessons from time to time. To speak to our musicians about the music, please ring Paul on 07714 699711 or Ian on 01206 577222
 
Costs
Dancers (not musicians) do pay sub each year (currently £30) to cover expenses (insurance, practice venue hire, equipement etc ) and have small float but you can try for free before deciding to commit to this lunacy. 
 
We pay our own transport, accomidation and kit costs. Most kit is fairly cheap but if your unlucky to not find a pair of clogs we have that fit a hand made pair can cost £160 plus and mean heading north. We do not insist on people having clogs to dance out.
