dilligafxx the Independent on morris dancing (72* d) RE: the Independent on morris dancing 29 May 08


I,m with Dead Horse on this one, I dance North West a very traditional version of Morris but I also dance border in tatters,large sticks, loud whopping,wearing dog collars and goth looking. and was married to a Coltswold dancer of the Ring sort (men only) I enjoy it all which is why any of us do it to enjoy ourselves.Does it matter? all the sides sing and keep folk alive in pubs and at festivals to people who sometimes listen and sometimes not but if one person in a hundred takes it to heart and joins a side, any side it will help keep a old and valued English tradition alive.What's the point in being a purist if in the end the whole thing dies out?
