The Morris Federation is an association of self-governing teams of morris dancers and related activities, which aims to: encourage and promote morris and related activities for anyone who wants to participate or to spectate; provide a channel of communication between member sides; encourage the improvement of standards of dancing and related activities among its members; and encourage an environment for morris and related activities where all feel safe, welcomed and respected.
The Morris Federation seeks to encourage all who are interested to experience the pleasure of morris dancing and related activities and to strive for the highest standard of which they are capable.
For morris, sword, mummers, clog step, appalachian & morris-related activities Your side is invited to take part in the 2023 Morris Census, an online survey of dance sides to gather information
While morris dancing would appear always to have been a predominantly male pursuit, it was never exclusively so. The idea of an organisation to provide information and moral support for these newly formed women’s sides was first mooted in 1973 and, following a period of informal contact, the Women’s Morris Federation was officially inaugurated in October 1975.
This talk gives an introduction to issues concerning Safeguarding of young people and vulnerable adults in a morris setting.
