Friday Fun

Last weekend,I happened across an Old Town performance by the Breathless in Berthoud Border Morris dancers. According to their website, "Border Morris dancing is a style of Morris dancing originating in the area of the English border with Wales. The dances are boisterous and energetic, primarily stick dances, emphasizing a thrilling performance rather than subtlety or refinement. The dancers often dance in black-face, and the dancers’ “kit” is often decorated with many ribbons or strips of material, known as rags. Besides the traditional dances, collected early in the twentieth century, Border teams dance many new dances, invented in the Border counties and in the U.S.A."

It was interesting and fun. If you see them around, check it out.
