Moreton Bay Fig Morris

San Diego County's Morris Dance Team

Moreton Bay Fig Morris is a San Diego-based team of dancers and musicians who perform a variety of traditional and modern English style folk dances throughout the year. The team was founded in 1984 and has continued to attract new members of all ages and backgrounds.

Dancing With Bells On

Morris dancing is a peculiar tradition of English folk dance in which the dancers often wear bells on their shins and wave hankies or bash sticks together while dancing. Since the first recorded mention of the dance in the 15th century, it has waxed and waned in popularity, but hundreds of dedicated morris teams around the world are still keeping the tradition alive.

Want To Try It?

Morris dancing is great fun, good exercise, and a reasonable excuse to act foolish in public. If this sounds like your kind of dancing, Moreton Bay Fig Morris meets for practice on Tuesdays, 7:30-9:00 pm, at the War Memorial Building in San Diego's Balboa Park. Follow the sound of bells to find us. All are welcome!
