29 May The Toronto Morris Men’s Dance Troupe to Descend on Mariposa
Traditional morris dancing is usually associated with seasonal celebrations such as the arrival of spring or the turn of the year. Its origins are believed to date before 1400’s, although its precise history is not known in the absence of documentation of the pastimes of common folk. The Toronto Morris Men has been presenting this exuberant and visually exciting dance form since 1985. They see their dance as an expression of the joy of being alive, of being here now. They also love to sing, and have a repertoire that reflects a zest for good company and good sustenance.
