The English Morris is believed, probably wrongly, to be based on pre-Christian ritual, in fact its origins are unknown. By the end of the 19th century, Morris was dying, and mainly restricted to a handful of Cotswold villages. The remaining dances were rescued from extinction by a number of collectors (notably Cecil Sharp) and a revival began.

 

Today hundreds of Morris sides dance Cotswold Morris and many more perform other forms of traditional English dances. In the North-East there are sword dances: rapper (with flexible swords or rappers) and longsword (rhythmic and elegant).

 

The North-West has Clog Morris, whilst around the Welsh borders is Border Morris (a very vigorous form) and in the fens the Molly dances appear mainly during the winter. Other variants occur in different regions of the UK, such as Norfolk where a solo step dance is traditional. Kemp's Men have invented their own tradition of Norwich upon Wensum, largely based on the Norfolk Longdance, and reflecting many Norfolk traditions, events or places.
