Yes, women can dance

Another great part of the Leeds wool festival at Armley Mills was the Briggate Morris dancers.

I remember having a couple morris dancing lessons at Primary school and loved it, always wanted to be a morris dancer but the dancers I saw growing up all seemed to be men and I’m most certainly not built for dancing.

These dancers though changed my mind. In chasing them down I found out they rehearse in near Leeds (Horsforth) and accept members. Not sure I’m quite fit enough to dance yet, but maybe my flute playing would be welcome.

The next place to see them is at the Morris Day of Dance in Sheffield, 13th June. In the meantime, here’s a video.
