Morris Dancing in Maldon

Maldon Coat of Arms

View of Maldon

Maldon is fortunate in being the home to three different Morris sides reflecting three different traditions of Morris Dancing. We are a group of men and women of all ages who want to continue the English tradition of morris dancing and have lots of fun (and the occasional beer!) at the same time. 

Generally, each side practice during the winter and dance out at local pubs and events during the summer. All sides are pleased to welcome new members; if you are interested, please follow the links below to the side of interest. Their contact details are given on their specific web page.

Alive & Kicking Dark Horse Maldon GreenJackets



Alive and Kicking is a mixed Morris side, formed in 1992 dancing in the traditional North-West Clog style. Their colours were chosen from the Maldon crest and consist of royal blue, with gold and white.
Dark Horse Morris were formed in 1995 and dance "Border" style Morris. Their kit represents the characteristic colours of the Thames Barges: burgandy, brown and cream (the commonest sail colours) and black (the hull colour). The white represents sea salt for which Maldon is also famous. Maldon Greenjackets was formed in 1988, originally with all male dancers but in 2000 became a mixed side. They mainly perform dances in the Cotswold tradition, which is the style most often identified as being typically English. It is danced with hankies, bells and sticks.
