The English traditional dance of Morris returns to Chicago in force, with nearly 300 dancers and musicians forming small groups Grant Park. Morris dancing is a living English tradition dating at least from Shakespeare’s time, performed by a set of six dancers, but some dances accommodate an infinite amount. Wearing bells and colorful attire, the dancers clash sticks or wave handkerchiefs as they perform the figures of the dance.
