Mothers’ Day at Ardenwood

We will, with 80% certainty, be performing at the Solano Stroll this year. Details forthcoming.
Did you miss us at these? Maybe we’ll see you next year!
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.
Banks of the Zee
For the 2020 Midwest Ale, a virtual event attended only over the internet, we created this live performance of Banks of the Zee and are declaring the birth of the new Morris dance tradition of “Zoomington”!
Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24, 2020
The great Midwest Ale is in online this year. Berkeley Morris produced this video as our show dance for the Ale, introducing the fabulous new dance tradition of Zoomington: Banks of the Zee

The California Morris Ale

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,

and a very Merry May to you and yours!
