Ian took up Morris dancing as a result of his theatrical interests,
where it was necessary to learn how to dance in order to play
the part in a local production. He soon learnt that
it was as much fun to do this as it was to be a thespian.
Ian is desperate to get the steps right and keeps a small
notebook summarising the main features of each tradition in
his back pocket. Interestingly, some of us remember doing
the same thing.
Ian is currently Stickman for The Side.
