Ann Arbor Community for Traditional Music and Dance


Ann Arbor Morris

The Ann Arbor Morris and Sword Team evolved in 1976, out of the formerly annual Ann Arbor Medieval Festival. Since then we have performed traditional English morris dances in the streets of Ann Arbor and elsewhere. We recently shortened our name to Ann Arbor Morris, but not much else has changed over the years. Our team currently consists of fourteen members. Our dances are generally of the Bucknell tradition, although we frequently experiment with others and even make up our own dances to keep things lively. We hope to see you at some of our performances!

Past performances: Shakespeare in the Arb production of As You Like It, The Midwest Morris Ale!, Annual May Day Celebration at Nichols Arboretum, the Farmer's Market, and Heavenly Scent Herb Farm in Fenton.
