Morris dancing could be "extinct" within 20 years because young people are too embarrassed to take part.

The Morris Ring, which represents 200 Morris troupes across Britain says the number of dancers is dwindling while their age is increasing.

Charlie Corcoran, Bagman of the Morris Ring, told the Daily Telegraph: "There's a distinct possibility that in 20 years' time there will be nobody left.

"It worries me a great deal. Young people are just too embarrassed to take part.

"This is a serious situation. The average age of Morris dancing sides is getting older and older. Once we've lost this part of our culture it will be almost impossible to revive it."

The Morris Ring is hoping a winter recruitment drive could attract some new younger members in time for the spring when most troupes perform the dances they have been practising.

Paul Reece, chairman of the Advisory Council of the Morris Ring, said: "There is still time for new blood to get ready for the Spring fertility offensive.

"But there is a serious danger that, in less than a few decades, Morris dancing will be confined to the history books.

Peace to All creatures great and small............................................

But when we turn to the Hebrew literature, we do not find such jokes about the donkey. Rather the animal is known for its strength and its loyalty to its master (Genesis 49:14; Numbers 22:30).

One tradition that never made sense to me...

That and the costumes are a bit effete. Might as well cavort about in a court jester outfit.

Will they be missed ????

The folky stuff is still a fairly big part of English tradition in rural town and villages. I doubt that it will die out entirely.

There's supposed to be over 150 Morris dancing teams in the US.

So Paul, break your broomstick in half, grab your wife's nighty, and Bob's your uncle. :D

The problem is that there isn't a Morris dancing team featured in the Archers...

I didn't think they did sex scenes in the Archers either, unless they've come up with a way of making sex on radio seem less ridiculous.
