Thread Name: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
Subject: RE: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
Some young people are joining Morris sides and carrying on the tradition. My son saw our local side in the carnival when he was six and asked them if he could join. They let him and at thirteen he's still dancing with them. Other young people have joined since and the team now ranges in age from 8 to 72. One of our 18 year olds (a fairly recent recruit) reckons Morris kit is a great tool for chatting up girls, and being chatted up by them.
