Open Practices – October 3rd & October 10th
Kingston Morris are recruiting. If you’ve ever fancied trying your hand, or indeed foot, at morris dancing then this is your chance.
If you are interested in joining us as dancer or musician then come along to our two free taster evenings this October and learn a morris dance under expert tuition. We welcome both new dancers and musicians and no previous morris dance experience is necessary, although a sense of rhythm is an advantage (as is a sense of humour). If you would like to play for us please bring your instrument. To book a place please contact us. Our practice venue is The Church of St John the Evangelist, Grove Lane, Spring Grove, Kingston, KT1 2SU – the evenings run from 8pm-10pm.
We are a fun team with a very active dance programme and a strong social side.
Our dance programme includes local community events, pubs, fairs and festivals, often dancing with other morris teams. We try to have at least one trip further afield each season, examples include Sidmouth Folk Week, Oxford Folk Weekend and Days of Dance with other morris teams or the various morris organisations. In 2016 we enjoyed a long weekend dancing in Poland as well as a weekend dancing at Swanage Folk Festival.
We are always keen to expand our numbers. We have a varied and busy programme of events so whether it’s dancing on a festival stage, freezing on top of Box Hill at dawn on Mayday or performing at corporate events you never know where the morris will take you.
