About us, who we are, what we do
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!
What do we do?
Cotswold Morris Dancing with flowers in our hats, waving white hankies and clashing sticks
Border dancing, in disguise, clashing sticks and making noise!
Rapper dancing with flexible swords - fast and furious!
Mumming plays where the dragon is killed and Saint George always wins - in spite of everything.
