Thread Name: Morris joins the Dodo?
Subject: RE: Morris joins the Dodo?
I have just come from a class of 14 /15 year olds and in the course of conversation on a piece of coursework one of the boys suggested Morris dancing as part of the essay. I gently asked him about what he meant and he said he had been in the town recently in the evening and had seen the local morris team practicising and had stood and watched them for a while, until he got too cold. He thought it was cool and would like to have a go but then added but it's a bit energetic so I might not be able to do it. I told him that it didn't have to be at first and that he would be well looked after and they would give him all the help he needed. He's now positively thinking about it and I will contact the local moris to get them to send him an invite. If it works, great, if it doesn't well at least he is interested enough to keep watching them and with any luck.....
