Just so everyone can see one of our performances from years past, here is a link to one in 1998 courtesy of Bob MaCarthur.  We are at 1:45:45 into the filming.  This was at the Anchorage Folk Festival of 1998.

Morris Dancing in Alaska.  We work to provide a traditional dance (somewhat) that has been practiced for several centuries in England.  Our small part in helping keep this tradition alive and it bring it to this part of the world is to make sure it rewards you by enjoying our performance as much as it rewards us to perform.

Each dance may have a historical meaning that has been carried forward, modified, and consequently performed by subsequent Morris Sides such as ours. As such, it is a living tradition that is subject to change and interpretation.  Enjoy, take part, and know that this living history is part and parcel of the world community.
