Morris dancing

Side of the Tide is the South Coast Folk Society’s Morris dancing team (sometimes called a”side”).  New dancers are welcome.  We dance for parades, special events, and just for the sheer joy of dancing.

We specialize in the Border Morris style, note the staves and tatters.


Everyone is welcome to come and try it out. We pass the hat to help pay for rental of the rehearsal space. To learn more, send an email to
