"THE FULL MORRIS"
 

Most of our dances are based on those performed at Bampton-in-the-Bush in Oxfordshire, the Upton-upon-Severn Border tradition and our own 'Medup' tradition, so called because it's "med up bi uz senz" (made up by ourselves).

However, for one performance only, we derived a 'dance' from a recent popular film shot in Sheffield. (We don't take ourselves too seriously!)



MORRIS MINORS!


For their School Fête on 29 July 2002, Shooters Grove decided to feature a team of Morris Dancers. The Shooters Grove Morris Minors were recruited from Y5 and Y6 and coached by myself, Gerry Bates, with Barry Callaghan providing the music.

Irish dance displays have been part of our International Festival repertoire since 1993 when Emily (aged 6) and Ellen (aged 7) danced in Ecuador.

A recent International appearance (right) was in Poland in 2002, the girls having developed their own style, costume and routines.

With a new name - Sciorr - they made their first independent appearance at Holmfirth Festival in May 2003.




Further festival appearances have been at Otley 2003/2004, Cleethorpes 2005, Wath 2005, Cheltenham 2006,
Sidmouth 2006, Whitby 2006 and, of course, the World Folkloriada (see below). They will make a special guest stage appearance at the 2007 Warwick Festival.

WORLD FOLKLORIADA
Hungary 2004



Sheffield City Morris took their roadshow to Hungary again in 2004 for the World Folkloriada, the 'Olympic Games' of folklore.

We covered a lot of the country and eagle eyed Archers fans were searching for any sign of Ed Grundy's presence. We weren't disappointed - roadside sales of garden gnomes, etc. But attached to a cider press in Vasvar -
irrefutable evidence!
