Dorset Buttons Morris

There are two halves to the Dorset Buttons. The ladies dance in a Northwest Morris style and the men dance Rapper.  A great way of being distinctive, yet together!  So while the ladies dance in clogs with sticks and look lovely, the men use swords.

Dorset Button Rapper are now in their 27th year. We strive to keep this tradition going in Dorset and welcome new members. Rapper sword dancing is a NE tradition and was originally danced by coal miners.
