Jack Frost Morris Dancing

TLDR: We are a fun and silly dance side and are always keen for people to stop past and see what we do and/or give Morris a go.

Jack Frost is a lively, irreverent Morris dancing side in Dunedin, New Zealand. As far as we know, we are the southernmost performing Morris side in the world. (Although morris dancing has taken place in the Antarctic, we haven't heard of a permanent side being established there yet.)

Morris is an energetic and entertaining traditional English dance form, usually performed with sticks or handkerchiefs to the accompaniment, often of pipe and tabor, tin whistle, drum, melodion/accordion, and sometimes other instruments.

Jack Frost's instrumental arsenal currently relies mainly on pipe and tabor and piano accordion, but has included a rauschpfeife, djembe, mandolin, violin and badger!. We don't use hankies, OH NO, not at all, only sticks (in Morris terminology, we are mainly a Border side). Many of our dances are accompanied by songs (often of a bawdy nature) and sometimes we just sing songs for fun as well.
