JMO Virtual Day of Dance 2021
 Saturday 24th April

The Morris Federation, The Morris Ring and Open Morris are coming together to bring you a whole day of dance workshops, music sessions, mass dances and lots of other opportunities to get involved! We may still be apart but there's lots we can do together!

~ #nogoJMO - A year on from our first event, feel free to post your favourite dancing videos and use the #nogoJMO hashtag to help us celebrate!

~ #lonemorrisfestival - We want to encourage you all to get your kit on today and get out and dance by yourself, or play a tune, sing a calling on song, or do a bit of fooling around - everyone can get involved and we'd love to see what everyone's up to!

~ Workshops - There will be four workshops throughout the day, held via zoom. Learn Bacca Pipes, 'Celebration' solo Northwest dance, 'Mrs Marhoff's Single Hornpipe' Step Clog routine, Over the Hills Oddington Cotswold Jig, (or all four!) then join us at the end of the day to dance them all together.

~ Massed Dancing - In addition to the workshop dances, we will be dancing some of our favourites together, and finishing off with Bonny Green Garters.

~ Sessions - Come and play all your favourite Morris and dance tunes in zoom with Sarah & Tom Sennett, Jon & Emma Melville, Selam Adamu & Ben otton and Sarah Matthews & Doug Eunson.
