Dartington Morris are again hosting an annual Day of Morris Dancing in Totnes on Saturday 17 September 2022.

On display will be a mixture of Cotswold Morris and Border Morris.
Dartington Morris welcome dancers of any gender.
Our practice season starts in October and continues until April. We are keen to encourage anyone interested in this fascinating English tradition to give Morris a go!

To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we hosted a Day of Morris Dancing in Dartmouth on Saturday 8 September 2018.
Fourteen sides were represented in a very enjoyable and memorable day that included local Morris sides and a few from further away.
Dartington Morris are proud performers of the Filkins tradition. You can read here a little about the background to this and the historical records that refer to it and allowed the dance style to be reconstructed from the scant details available.
