Thread Name: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
Subject: RE: Morris Dancers-why do you dance?
I dance Scottish country for much the same reasons. Great people, great fun, good exercise before it cripples you, lots of good tunes about ( but not so many as morris) and so on.

Dancing in public, and making it look good is fun as well. It doesn't have to be right, but if it looks good and it works, it feels great. Feels even better when something goes totally wrong, and no-one outside the set notices. You can tell when that hapens as the 'stage smiles' dissapear to be replaced with real ones.
