The Cardiff Morris
"Y Morys Caerdydd"
Although it is commonly thought that the practice of Morris Dancing is an utterly English thing, there exists in the Land Of My Fathers a branch of this terpsichorean art steeped in the traditions of The Morris for 50 years - just how many times must there be repetition before it becomes "tradition"?... - we present: The Cardiff Morris!
Cardiff Morris is open to dancers of either gender. Anyone interested in dancing the Morris in Cardiff is welcome to join us, although we should draw your attention to other dancing sides in Cardiff in the Morris traditions such as Clocs Canton.
Due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic our 2020 programme was lost. After the relaxation of lockdown and Covid restrictions we finally returned to practice outdoors in June of 2021. Our first Dance Out was at the Pantmawr Inn in Whitchurch on 24th August. We have managed three more Dance Outs and one booking at the Radyr Festival in September, whilst returning to a new Practice Hall at St Andrews Church Hall in Birchgrove, Cardiff during September and the following Practice season.
We dance mainly an eight-dancer Welsh and six-dancer Cotswold repertoire. Although we do not dance out in England quite as much as we used to back in the halcyon days of the 70s and early 80s we would like to think that those sides who do know us remember us as a side who know how to have a good time as well as maintain a standard of dance of which to be proud.
Having danced in the Capital City of the Principality for long enough, we have become, by default and longevity, if nothing else, a respectable non-gender-specific representation of modern dance.... no, I can't go on, we're only in it for the beer!
