Drunken Weasel is a mixed side, dancing in the energetic, and wild tradition known as Border Morris. Inspired by such British sides as Boggart’s Breakfast and Hunter’s Moon, we bring this excitement to Tidewater Virginia with exuberance and flair.
Border Morris, as it has come to be known, Is a style of English Morris Dance that developed along the border with Wales in Shropshire, Herefordshire, and Worcestershire.
Border Morris is known for its exuberance, energetic though simple stepping, and by its more chaotic and rowdy nature. It uses the clashing of sticks, rather than relying on hankie waving. Many border dance sides will be noted for wearing the “rag coat”, a coat or tunic covered in rags or ribbons, and by their disguised faces.
We are of course available for festivals, carnivals, parties, and fetes. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
Are you a Musician or a Dancer?
The Weasels are always welcoming new dancers or musicians, no experience necessary (well musicians do need to know how to play).
