Morris dancing is an energetic stick clashing, bell ringing, handkerchief flashing dance form, ideal for the energy of youth. It is a living dance tradition with roots that go back to ancient England; the lively movements are said not only to please audiences, but as a springtime dance, to awaken the earth. The Green Mountain Morris, Maple Leaf Morris, and Catamount Morris are based in Norwich, Vermont, USA.

Catamount Morris (tween boys and girls, 9 and up)

Catamount Morris is a new team for 9-14 year olds, coached by Chris Levey and Barbara DeFelice. Our first gig was under the name "Maple Buds" in the Revels North Christmas Revels 2011, where eight kids performed along with eight teens from Maple Leaf Morris. We also danced the sun up on May Day, and performed in Boston at the Ginger Ale, and finally as part of the Revels Solstice Festival in Norwich VT. Come join the fun! We practice on Tuesday early evenings at the Marion Cross School in Norwich Vermont.

Green Mountain Morris is a young men's side, performing primarily the Beldington tradition from 1997 through 2009, and reforming in 2015 with Rapper Sword dancing added to our repertoire. We practice on Tuesday early evenings at the Marion Cross School in Norwich Vermont.
