Come and have a go, men and women welcome

Did you know that dancing is recommended as the best way of keeping fit?  Numerous health studies by the NHS and others, have found that dancing gives the benefits of physical exercise that is not too violent, plus the mental exercise of learning new moves improves the mind – and it’s a great social activity as well.  Morris dancing provides all of those benefits – exercise in small doses, a great mixture of it’s own moves and a great social scene.  The Men of Wight invite all comers (age 18 and over) to come and have a go on a Thursday evening.  (Don’t be fooled by the ‘Men’ bit in the name, that’s a hangover from a previous era, we are male and female).

Every Thursday evening from 8:15 for an hour and a half, at Newport Methodist Church, Quay St, Newport, PO30 5BA.  We meet in the hall, which is accessed though the gate on the right hand side of the church.  Just pop along and have a go.

If you have musical talents, we welcome new musicians and give instructions in the dance tunes and the arts of playing for dancing.
