About

Since 1977, the “Foggs” have committed morris and mayhem throughout the DMV area (DC, MD, VA) and even in other states and countries! We dance, we sing, we drink (not always in that order) and we’re happy to invite you to join us.

Morris dancing is an athletic traditional dance from England. It’s referenced as old in Shakespeare but has been practiced in the United States for over a hundred years. For us it’s a living tradition, our repertoire is made of and informed by the old as much as the new.

We perform for ourselves and other teams on the street and for hire at places like PIKEtoberfest and May Day at Historic St. Mary’s.

The Foggy Bottom Morris Men hold weekly open practices and will teach you to dance if you decide to join. We are made of a variety of people with many different backgrounds. If you think you can’t dance and sing we will change your mind! We practice every Thursday at Knock on Wood studio in Takoma, Washington, D.C.
