A terrifying report was on the news this afternoon – a warning that Morris Dancing could be dying out due to a dearth of young people wanting to take up the practice.
Apparently the youth feel it is embarrassing.
While I certainly wouldn’t take part – mainly as I just don’t do dancing of any sort whatsoever – I don’t really think it would be any more embarrassing than bouncing around a nightclub topless and drunk. Is it?
I think it is quite nice to see a bit of Morris Dancing around the place – its one of those Olde English traditions which we should try to keep. I wonder if there is scope for an EU grant?
