BRANDRAGON MORRIS

Founded in 2001, this is Melbourne’s only North West Morris Side.

Morris Dancing is traditional English folk dancing. The North West style is done in formations of 4, 6 or 8 dancers – to live music. The dancers wear heavy clogs which were worn in the factories of England during the time just after the Industrial Revolution. The dancing steps are quite simple, but the dancers create interesting visual patterns which comes from hours of practise.

The current band has members who play the melodeon, the recorder, the drum and other percussion instruments.
