Peterborough Morris can offer:-
Each event is different, and we can fit in with the type of venue and your other attractions. What we can offer:-
Typical booking. Two displays separated by a shortish break.
A talk by our resident historian to your school or club on the history of Morris. This may be supported by a few demonstration dances. Talks can be arranged through our Bagman or directly with our principal speaker, Dr. Matthew Simons at matt.j.simons AT icloud.com
Audience participation! We can teach a simple morris dance and get spectators involved.
More Audience participation! In addition to a morris display, we can run a short social dance. Each dance is explained before it starts, then reminders given during by our resident caller Ollie Simons with music by our morris musicians.
Celidhs / barn dances. For a full evening of social dancing Ollie would engage a local celidh band. Contact Ollie directly at ollienobells3 AT gmail.com
Group tuition.We taught morris to a group enabling them to perform at their village Fete.
Children:We taught a group of Girl Guides some morris dancing. Scouts are also possible.
Schools: Morris can be a fun component of physical education, or in other areas such as history, music and culture. This can be in school hours by members who are either retired or work flexible hours.
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award:Morris dancing may be used in fulfilment of either the 'Physical Recreation’ or 'Skill’ element of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. We can provide tuition during our winter practice season (September-April).
