Morris dancing

Morris Group Memprial Day 2021Side of the Tide is the South Coast Folk Society’s Morris dancing troupe (also called a “side”).  New dancers are welcome.  We dance for parades, special events, to entertain groups, and just for the sheer joy of dancing.

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

Here’s a video of our troupe dancing Mr. Dolly on the Boardwalk in Bandon, Oregon, on May 1, 2022.

Everyone is welcome to come and try it out.  Free Morris Dance lessons at every practice.
