We are Black Dragon Morris, a mixed Cotswold style morris dancing side named from the legendary Dragon that roamed St Leonard’s Forest on the outskirts of Horsham.
We formed in late 2010 and became members of the ‘Open Morris’. Since January 2012 we have become members of The Morris Federation. We mainly dance the style of Morris that originated from the villages set deep in the Cotswolds, centred in or around Oxfordshire.
As with many folklore activities the exact replication becomes very subjective. However, with the written documentation available our main goal is to interpret those traditions the best way we can, whilst offering entertainment that is enjoyable to both audience and dancer alike.
