Jack Frost Morris
Jack Frost is a lively, irreverent Morris dancing side in Dunedin, New Zealand. As far as we know, we are the southernmost performing Morris side in the world. (Although morris dancing has taken place in the Antarctic, we haven't heard of a permanent side being established there yet.)
Morris is an energetic and entertaining traditional English dance form, usually performed with sticks or handkerchiefs to the accompaniment (often) of pipe and tabor, tin whistle, drum, melodion/accordion, and sometimes other instruments. Wikipedia, as ever, has more information for anyone who is interested.
We don't use hankies, OH NO, not at all, only sticks (in Morris terminology, we are mainly a Border side). Many of our dances are accompanied by songs (often of a bawdy nature) and sometimes we just sing songs for fun as well.

Currently (from February 2021) we are usually practicing at 7-8pm on Wednesday. Occasionally we have other public dance-outs; these are listed on our calendar. Many of us participate in the occasional singing session too, though these are seldom public performances.
