As you can see from our pictures we are an assorted bunch who like dancing, entertaining people and most of all we like having fun.
We practise in the winter months and dance out in the summer.
We dance locally and at festivals throughout the UK.
We have also performed in Ireland and France.
We have friends all over the place. We do mean friends!
Lifelong friendships have developed from meeting other dancers at festivals, concerts and weekends which we have arranged and invited other morris dancers.
As well as dancing with Crook, several of our members also dance with other teams. It's not just Morris dancing either, Clog Dancing, Appalachian Dancing and Garland Dancing are all part of their repertoire.
We also enjoy ceilidh dancing, where we can really let our hair down, and our musicians never miss out on a chance to join a session in a pub!
Crook Morris would like to make it clear that we are proud to be an inclusive organisation.
Membership is, and always will be open to all, subject to a minimum age limit.
Furthermore, we are proactive in standing against all forms of discrimination, both in the Morris world and in all sectors of our society.
We want people from all backgrounds to enjoy our dancing, and not made to feel unwelcome or uncomfortable by any element of a performance or our community.
We’re very happy for people to use photographs of our side but only after permission has been granted by Crook Morris. Please contact us for further details.
We deplore the use of images, that are in any way connected with organisations or publications which use and condone discriminatory language and behaviour.
