Marlee News – Folk in the Forest and more

Since the resumption of practices back in mid June we have been reasonably busy both with practices and a few events.  We have danced at the following:

  • Tom’s Birthday Celebrations – Tom celebrated a significant Birthday recently and he is presently Foreman of three out of the four Perth Morris sides and has been involved with Morris in Perth for approximately forty years.  So it was only appropriate that all Morris sides turned out to dance for and with Tom.  For us dancing there see – Black Joke Bledington
  • Core Cider – Fire Fable Feast.  For the second year in a row they invited us to help celebrate the “Fire, Fable and Feast” Winter Festival.  It was a well organised and fun night.  For us dancing there see – Dilwyn
  • Carmel Cider – Winter Wassailing Festival.  Another Cidery invited us to dance for them.  It was a fun evening – for some photos see – Photos

We are performing at the South Fremantle Festival of Lights in South Terrace, South Fremantle from 5 to 7 PM on Sunday 8th of November.

We have been invited to perform at the annual “Folk in the Forest” event at Dwellingup in November. Folk in the Forrest is a fund raiser for “Little Folk” a children’s cancer charity.  In their blurb they said “We look forward to having Marlee Morris make their debut this year.  Exciting, vibrant, consummate dancers all – they’ll take your breath away.  We may get a brief glimpse of them on Friday night just before the ceili. See them on the deck on Saturday after lunch.”  For more details – see Folk in the Forest Performance

Come and Try It Event

Marlee Morris are holding a “Come and Try It” event to give anyone interested a chance to come and experience some Morris Dancing.  

So if you fancy a few hours of fun with a friendly group of people please make contact using the details below.  While some dancing experience may be an advantage the only sure way to determine if you could do it and if you would like to do it more regularly is to come and try it.

The event is free.  Morning Tea will be provided.

For a downloadable pdf about the event see – Come and Try It

Come and Try It

Marlee Morris extend an invitation to you to come and try Morris dancing, that whacky traditional English dancing with sticks, bells and handkerchiefs (wavers) . We are welcoming new members after a Covid break and can’t wait to start dancing out again.

We’ll all be there at The Seaward Guide Hall, Monash Ave, Nedlands on August 16, 9am – 12pm ready to teach you what we know – and we’ll provide morning tea so you can have a chat and get to know us. While some previous dancing experience might be helpful, the only way to find out if you can do it is to give it a go! It’s free for the first lesson and we all contribute a token amount after that to go towards hall hire. We are a very social group and often gather at a café or pub after a gig.

Let Steve know if you wish to join us on 0400 731 049 and he can answer your questions about Morris dancing in general and why we love it so much. Wear comfortable clothing with flat shoes.
