Black Joak Morris performs the traditional folk dancing of the bucolic English Cotswolds. Their Morris dancing is fresh and varied, friendly and skilled, danced to live music provided by talented and knowledgeable musicians. The dancing ranges from single-person jigs to nine-person spectaculars. Morris is an ancient tradition associated with fertility rites and celebration of the seasons. It is also a living tradition and Black Joak perform many dances written recently, including Australian Morris dances developed by the side itself.
