Taster Sessions – Monday Evenings from September 11th 2023

Come and join us for our Autumn taster sessions and learn a traditional morris dance with our friendly team. Based in Upper Hale, Farnham. Founded in 1977, Jackstraws are one of the longest-established women’s morris teams in the country, in the summer can be seen performing at fetes, festivals and special events as well as our regular pub evenings where we dance with other local groups. Our taster evenings are the perfect chance to give morris dancing a try, dancing to live music in a supportive and fun group. Dancing is a great form of exercise – and much more fun than the gym. It’s also fantastic for your mental health and wellbeing. Loose clothing and sports shoes recommended.

Get in touch if you’d like more information, or just come along on the night – our taster evenings are free of charge and open to all 18 and over.

“I love Monday evenings … dancing makes me happy – it’s great exercise and a chance to learn something new with a great bunch of people. It’s really boosted my confidence.

I never knew I was a dancer until I tried morris. “
