|2011 Rutland Ring meeting|
Welcome to Rutland Morris home page!
We are a small , but perfectly formed, Cotswold Morris dancing side that are fortunate and privileged to represent the glorious county of Rutland in the East Midlands. Indeed, we are the only morris side to solely represent a whole county.
We are an all male dancing side, but welcome female musicians. We were formed in 1974.
Rutland Morris enjoy a national perspective on morris dancing and regularly travel to ring meetings and other such gatherings around the country.
“Mad but Happy” would be a self descriptor, and we are proud to have been introduced at a national meeting as the Unpredictable Rutland Morris after having performed one dance to the tune of another. It’s a secret whether this was accidental or not!
In Winter we stray into border tradition , and are proud to be a founder club involved in the restoration of the Whittlesey Straw Bear Tradition . We also have our Mummers Play which tours pubs in the Christmas season and also has an outing on St George’s day.
We always welcome new members into our friendly club. No previous dancing experience is necessary, and two left feet is not a barrier. We guarantee that to join our club will be life affirming and changing!
