Day of Dance for St George

Sunday the 21st of April was an unseasonably warm day as Marlee Morris dancers performed for two gigs to celebrate the patron saint of England. Starting with a performance in Kings Park overlooking the River and the City. We attracted many passers by as well as ardhent fans who had seen us advertised in the Boorloo Heritage Festival guide. It was an honour to celebrate the heritage of the country where the dances originated, the city we call home and the orginal owners of the land on which Perth is built.

Following a well deserved lunch we headed north to the Duke Bar and Bistro in Carramar who had a full St George’s day party with much bunting, English ale and Proper football on the TVs. We lured a sizable crowd out to the car park with our performance adding a  traditional element to a fun weekend.


Bookending Summer at Cottesloe

Summer In Western Australia is HOT and any sensible Morris dancer has spent the time inside, practicing in our air conditioned hall. However we started the Summer with a lovely morning dance out arranged by the Perth Morris Men at Cottesloe Beach and ended with a twilight dance out at the same spot accompanied by dancers from PMM, Fair Maids of Perth and Mad Tatters Morris.
