Renegade Morris transforms a random collection of interesting characters into a crazy quilt of frolicking dancers. Our dancing can be “rough around the edges,” but it is consistently high energy and full of spontaneous fun.
Since 2007, the side has performed in venues all around Philadelphia, including historical organizations, library fairs, private parties, dance festivals, and May Day celebrations. We welcome inquiries from anyone who enjoys lively music and dancing, performed with contagious zest and enthusiasm.
Even more than gigs, we welcome new dancers to discover the joys of Morris. Perhaps you wonder what drives otherwise sensible people to tie bells on their legs, then frolic about waving hankies and clashing sticks. Ancients established these spring rituals to wake the earth and ensure its fertility. Our reasons are simpler: we dance because it is fabulous fun!
