Video Performances

While we’re all sheltering in place and unable to dance together, we’ve been taking it as an opportunity to create some amazing video productions.

At dawn on May morning, 2020, we were all dancing the sun up from our own separate locations, and our in-house video master used that footage to produce an astounding mash-up of The Princess Royal.

May Day!

Lucy will NOT be at Inspiration Point this May 1. She has instructed Berkeley Morris to NOT go there, and in the interest of everyone’s safety, she wants all Mayday celebrants to STAY AWAY. There is NO Mayday celebration at Inspiration Point in Tilden Park this year – please do NOT come out. However, the individual members of Berkeley Morris will be dutifully dancing up the sun, as individuals in their own homes and backyards and thanks to the miracle of the Internet, we can all share the moment: Join our YouTube live stream at 6:00 am on Friday to help us keep the wheel of the seasons turning! Update! This is the complete video of our May Morning dances: May Morning 20202 With love,
Berkeley Morris
