Thread Name: EFDSS - should I join?
Subject: RE: EFDSS - should I join?
Hi manitas

I am responding to you, rather than to a GUEST, who chooses to remain anonymous - I always ignore them!

As a member of a Morris Ring side (of men!) and as a regular attender of the Annual Ring Meeting (ie the AGM) of the Morris Ring of England for nearly all the past ten years, I cannot recall any debate about whether women should be allowed to dance morris.

All the three morris organisations affiliate to EFDSS and each organisation invites the others to send observers to its AGM. There have also been a number of joint activities, such as archiving projects and the production of morris dance material for use in schools.

But, of course, that does not stop any club choosing which other clubs it wishes to dance with and some of the Ring sides choose to dance only with other men's sides.

I am the Lord of the dance, said He ...
