Morris Dancers Group in Rochester

Wolf’s Head and Vixen Morris are a Border Morris side. This is the most primitive and arguably the most exhilarating of the Morris dancing styles. It is traditionally distinguished by the tattered rag jackets, sticks and blackened faces of the dancers. Wolf’s Head(the men) and Vixen (the women) go one further by dressing all in black. We dance to a variety of traditional and original tunes, with a Gothic feel and a mesmerising drumbeat.

Wolf’s Head and Vixen are always looking to welcome new dancers and acoustic musicians: female and male, old and young (you must be over 16 to join). You need no experience and no equipment; just bring yourself, your enthusiasm, footwear to dance in (or your instrument) and a determination to have a good time.

Drop into one of our practice sessions at The Sans Pareil, 245 Frindsbury Hill, Rochester ME2 4JS any Wednesday evening from 7.30pm (please let us know if you are planning to come).

For any other questions please e-mail our Secretary, at whandv@hotmail.com
