Rackaback is a mixed border team in Hull, East Yorkshire.  We formed in January 2011 and have built up a repertoire of traditionally inspired Border Morris dances with our own Rackaback twists. We dance to music played on traditional ‘morris’ instruments including accordion, concertina and melodeon to well know folk melodies and newly composed tunes.

Next dance out: Rackaback Morris Invites You. 16 Oct 18

Rackaback Morris invites you to come and have a go. Dancers and musicians welcome.

“The Morris dance is common to all inhabited worlds in the multiverse.
It is danced under blue skies to celebrate the quickening of the soil and under bare stars because it's springtime and with any luck the carbon dioxide will unfreeze again. The imperative is felt by deep-sea beings who have never seen the sun and urban humans whose only connection with the cycles of nature is that their Volvo once ran over a sheep. “
--Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man (London: Victor Gollancz Ltd., 1991)

We are a Morris dancing team in the border style founded in Hull at the beginning of 2011 and we are always looking to welcome in the interested and just plain curious people to come and enjoy the dance.
Morris dancing is the type of dancing that all you need is to be fit enough for a few minutes dancing, to be able to count to 8 and know your left from your right. (The last two are optional)

So while every week our doors are open to all newcomers on Tuesday 16th October 2018 at 19:15 to 21:15 we are metaphorically taking them off their hinges.
It’s at St Vincents School Dining Hall on Queen’s Road (HU5 2RQ) through the gate and across the playground listen for the sound of sticking and music.
Meet, see and have go. The worst thing that could happen is you enjoy yourself.

We’re always interested to meet new recruits. So if you're a musician who wants to play for dancers or if you fancy dancing why not give it a try. No experience is necessary as full teaching is given. Come and enjoy the dance. Details on our Joining page. Why not come and try Morris - you'll be sure of a warm welcome!
