As the South West gears up for 2012 there are a series of events this September. Nine young Morris teams are visiting Weymouth on September 26th as part of the preparations for the Olympic Cultural events and the next weekend Frome Valley Morris are holding a workshop on Saturday October 3rd at Dorchester Arts Centre 2.30-4.30. Morris dancing is part of the distinctive cultural setting of this country as well as being fun, social and a great way to keep fit. The workshop will be most suitable for beginners or those new to dancing but all are welcome to come along. Tuition is being given by experienced tutors and there will be live music, tea and biscuits. All you need are comfortable shoes e.g trainers. The 2012 Olympics give us the chance to celebrate things British and move off our couches to a more active lifestyle so here is an opportunity not to be missed.
