Morris Class

MORRIS CLASS ON ZOOM
Latest Draft Agenda –
Have fun with us 6:30pm on 7th April as we:
  • Say “Hi” to our chums and briefly warm up.
  • Enjoy a brief practice – Brackley Shepherd’s Hey Jig single steps and rear ups, see video immediately below. Very little space is needed for this. Choose the right energy level for you, these steps are great fun to do! Do contact Andy Richards if you have questions.
  • Chat briefly about the practice we just did as we warm down.
  • Amuse ourselves with a quick morris quiz – have pencils and paper to hand.
  • Chat socially with chums, including what could be fun for next morris class session 21st April.
