Morris Dancing Comes to Hopkinton

Morris dancing is an old English country tradition dating back to the 15th century. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, hundreds of villages throughout England supported Morris teams and the dancers often competed from prizes at county fairs. While the interest in Morris dancing faded for a short time, it is now back full force and today there are many teams, or sides, dancing in England and over 200 cities in the United States.
