English Morris Dancing Workshop | Berkeley

Every Tuesday through September 20th.

Feeling a little sluggish? Need to get that blood pumping? Secretly enjoy live fiddle and accordion music?

Come join the basics of Morris dancing at the annual free workshop series in Berkeley starting on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 and continuing for four weeks (with a two-week break with no workshops on September 6 & 13).

You may have seen Morris dancing at a local Renaissance Faire; they’re the ones with bells on their legs wielding large sticks, or flailing big handkerchiefs wildly about. Morris dancing is so old that Shakespeare was making fun of it, but it is still alive and well in its English homeland as well as all over the world, including here in the Bay Area.

Wear exercise-compatible clothes and some non-marking athletic shoes. They’ll provide the sticks and hankies. All ages are welcome.

Workshops for 2016 will be held on the following dates (all are Tuesdays beginning at 7:30 pm):

  • August 23
  • August 30
  • September 20
