Founded in 1984, Heather and Gorse Clog Morris are a ladies only dancing side (but we do have male musicians!) based near Newton Abbot, Devon. We dance mainly North West Morris dances with the occasional Cotswold dance thrown in. Our main aim is to enjoy ourselves and keep fit, but we also hope that we provide entertainment for others.
In the Winter we practice every week on a Wednesday evening in Combeinteignhead village hall.
In the Summer we try to dance out at least once a week in the evening, usually at a pub. We also regularly dance at Sidmouth Folk Festival, Teignmouth Folk Festival and Brixham Heritage week. We like to spend at least one weekend away at a folk festival every year.
Our kit is traditional with a blue skirt, white bloomers, white blouse and black waistcoat. We wear black clogs with bells. We also have a small band of musicians playing drums, concertinas, melodeons, and anything else to hand!
New dancers and musicians are always welcome.
