Rising Phoenix Morris Performance

Rising Phoenix Morris will perform in the Channel Islands Courtyard on April 14th. There will be two shows – the  first at 11:00am and the second at 2:30pm.

The group is comprised of about 40 dancers and musicians who will perform for Ventura Harbor Village visitors!

Morris is a traditional folk dance from the Cotswold and border regions, which was found in small villages around Oxford, England at the end of the 19th century. It was a central part of annual springtime rituals throughout the region. The dancers wear dozens of bells on each leg, wield sticks and/or handkerchiefs, and dance to lively folk tunes.
