Barbara Butler has been dancing the Morris since 1972 and started collecting dances the following year while dancing with Bath City Morris and Oxford Ladies. Her interest in dance notation led her on to becoming Technical Officer of the Morris Federation. While in office she started the Notation Group and was involved with the writing of several booklets on the subject, published by the Morris Federation. She has taught the dances in Britain, Germany and America. She currently plays (concertina) and dances with Somerset Morris.

Please wear shoes that allow the instep to flex and provide protection and support for the foot. Also please bring two large handkerchiefs, then we are set to go. Sticks will be provided.
