Most people may deem them to be as cool as a heatwave on Planet Mercury, but I rather like Morris dancers – I mean, they drink a lot, dance about a bit and wave things in the air- much like my average Saturday night, really.

I popped down to the big Morris event on the Southbank on Saturday and grabbed a load of photos – follow the links at the bottom of the page for the full collection.

  1. I was there over an hour, and in the final ‘dance off’ started seeing the same sides twice so assumed I’d seen all the performers.

    I arrived a bit late so maybe I missed them if they’d danced earlier. Sorry!

  2. Hi! I’m writing an online course in arts education for the University of South Australia and am looking for images of different dance styles to illustrate the section on dance education. Would you be willing for me to use one of the photos posted here if suitably credited? To clarify, the photo would only be visible to students enrolled on this one course and is for educational rather than commercial use. Do please email me victoria[dot]watts[@]unisa[dot]edu[dot]au if you would be agreeable or want to know more.
