Oakworth Morris



It seems that men's morris dance sides are dwindling in these parts. Oakworth Village Morris Men dance in the Cotswold Morris style, traditionally with six men but on this occasion they only had four dancers. They may be short of dancers but they were not lacking in enthusiasm and energy.

  1. Good for them to be keeping the old traditional dances alive.

  2. The costuming is so great. The flowers at the hem of the pants is an interesting accent.

  4. I love seeing these pictures! After watching an evening of Morris dancing a few months ago, I am very interested in the different presentations.

  5. They can only attract four dancers? That is a sign that the days are numbered. I hope a new generation adopts the traditions.
