Morris Dance

Morris Dance

During the post-war folk revival there was a huge increase in the popularity of Morris Dance in England. At this time Sussex had its fair share of Morris sides; some of these didn’t last very long but others are still dancing today. Morris dancers traditionally dance at Whitsun and Mayday but modern teams will dance out more regularly. You can often see them at fetes, country fairs, folk festivals and other celebrations.
