Image <P>An article about English folk dance and a new, theatrical presentation. 'England Dances':<P>'It is choreographed by the traditional dance expert Steve Rouse and combines early 'mummers' movements with authentic nineteenth-century sailors' hornpipes and clog dances as well as with the better known white-suited antics of the Morris dancer on the village green.'<P>But then we move into controversial waters: <P>'The cast of England Dances - five women and five men - reflects a growing interest in traditional dance across the shires, but also shows the increased involvement of women in a pastime usually seen as an all-male preserve. Many morris 'sides' have now agreed to accept women, in spite of a November ruling from the official Morris Dancing Ring of England that they must be excluded as members.' <BR> <A HREF="http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4020544,00.html" TARGET=_blank>www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/Archive/<BR>Article/0,4273,4020544,00.html</A> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 21, 2000).]
