Wessex Morris Men Looking For New Recruits
11:20am 30th June 2014
Wessex Morris Men are on the hunt for new, younger recruits to keep the tradition alive.
Don't be fooled into thinking it's just village fetes you'll be dancing at, these guys travel around the world.
Morris Dancer Mike Phelan says once you try it, you won't look back.
" We have great fun, we give the crowd a laugh and we get great exercise from it. Wessex Morris men are a really socially bunch. We're not a bunch of old fuddy-duddies. We keep fit from our dancing and take everyone all over the world."
Wessex Morris Men have performed in Germany, France and Austria and give energetic and entertaining displays in towns and villages across Dorset and at major shows.
Their oldest dancer is 86!
They're holding an open event at the Colliton Club in Dorchester tonight (Monday 30th June) at 8.15pm.
