Every year Berkeley Morris hosts a series of FREE workshops in morris and related dance traditions. No experience is needed, and all are welcome! Workshops are taught by members of Berkeley Morris, or friends of ours from the local (or not so local) dance community. Come to one, or attend all four. Join us afterwards at the Jupiter Pub at 2181 Shattuck Avenue in downtown Berkeley.

The particular styles and dances taught vary from year to year. If you attended last year, come back for something new!

Come and learn the basics of Morris Dancing at a series of free workshops in Berkeley. Each Tuesday we will teach a different variation and begin at the beginning, so come to as many as you want.  No partner needed; this is danced in a group rather than with a partner.

Morris Dance is a traditional English performance dating back hundreds of years, typically done in the spring by a team of dancers and musicians who have practised together over the winter months.  Berkeley Morris was founded in 1977. We perform throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Our team members cover a wide range of locations, professions, ages and genders.

These are the Morris Dancers who make the sun come up at Tilden Park on Beltane!
