Description

Australian Morris Ring is an organisation that represents Australian Morris dancers. It represents ‘sides’, or Morris dancing teams, in all Australian states and territories except the Northern Territory. The groups perform the Cotswold, Borders (the border between Wales and England), and North West (of England) versions of Morris dancing, Morris dancing is an English folk dance that is attested from the late fifteenth century. There are also other dances mentioned elsewhere in Europe that may have a common origin.
