Cotswold Morris Dance Detailed Notes

74 dances & 8 aliases from 15 traditions

Version 90

(Formats: individual pages per dance, all on one page, to print or the source code.)

What is it?

It is a set of detailed instructions for a number of Cotswold Morris dances (a type of traditional English performance folk dancing) that I wrote when trying to learn them or as reference. I have put them on the WWW lest it is of use or of interest to anyone else. I make no guarantees as to the accuracy (these were all written down from life not from canonical reference books).

The notes are very long winded. My much shorter Cotswold Morris Dancing Cheat Sheet, which just contains summaries, might be of more use.

The notes are available both as individual pages, one per dance, or all on one page:
