About the Dragons

Morris is a traditional English folk dancing style and Brandragon is Melbourne's only north west Morris side. We travel and perform throughout Melbourne and Victoria all year round at fairs, festivals, markets, fetes and weddings. We are a fun, diverse and friendly group, all ages, genders and levels of ability are welcome. Come along to dance, play some music and have a beer (or cider) with us.

Hiring us

Brandragon are available for performance or workshop by arrangement, with a store of dances that can be taught to the enthusiastic of all ages. Our repertoire consists of set dances for anywhere between three and twelve performers. We are happy to dance on grass, stone or timber, as long as the surface is level and free of pitfalls.

Live music is provided by our own musicians on whistle, melodeon and drum, with the added advantage that we require no amplification.

We are also more than happy to run a workshop for you, teaching you the basic steps and figures to one of our dances, giving you the opportunity to learn a simple, energetic dance form. We regularly teach dances at our performances both to children and adults, and have run workshops at major events, including the National Folk Festival and Woodford Folk Festival.

We can be booked for a single performance slot, or for full or half days. We are generally happy to stay overnight if festivals run for multiple days.
