Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
Hello all,

thought I would chip in - I was contacted by the Times this morning, after my friend who works there gave them my contact details...I've given them an honest account of how i view the morris to be heading...

I am 25 and female, and have been dancing since i was three but had quite the opposite view of the morris actually, while there aren't thousands of us young ones all in one place, turn up at Sidmouth, or Broadstairs, or IVFDF and the morris tradition is alive and kicking - be the young people members of the ring, open morris or Fed - or just interested in giving it a go through shooting roots, workshops etc.

I don't think we should wuite be working ourselves into a panic yet, but instead use this publicity in a positive way to encourage more young people to dance. - the mention of free beer and sarnies and fit girls normally gets my guy mates keen... :0)

I am not that bothered by men who want to dance together and only together - in fact I love to watch ;0)
