Calling All Morris Dancers! Rising Phoenix Morris is proud to host the 2016 California Morris Ale: The IrRaTiOn'Ale to be held April 22nd to 24th at the beautiful Gindling Hilltop Camp in Malibu California overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Come join us for a weekend of fun, frolic, music, mayhem, and madness! We will tour through the Ventura countryside dancing at various stops (including pubs) along the way. Dust off your fancy chapeau for the Mad Tea Party Banquet on Saturday night followed by more dancing and pubbing on Sunday when we will wish you all a fond farewell until next time...

Registration forms are available HERE! Register NOW to take advantage of our Leap For Special Discount by 2/29/16 at 3:14 am. Additional information is available at the California Ale Website.


Rising Phoenix Morris performs traditional dances derived from the Cotswold farming regions of England.   According to 17th century written records, it is believed these dances date back to at least the Renaissance. English Morris Dancing is a high-energy, exuberant dance form characterized by waving hankies and sticks clacking together, sometimes even flying from hand to hand.  

Based in the greater LA area,  RPM appears at festivals and public venues bringing colour and fun with their unique 'village square' style of dancing and live music.  Their goal is to bring pleasure to all who would take the time to watch and enjoy,  as has been, and is still being done throughout the lovely countryside villages of England.  

Rising Phoenix Morris is affiliated with Morris organizations in England, and the American Folk Song and Dance Society.

We practice on Monday nights In Santa Monica California. Feel free to contact us:
