The Morris Dance is an English folk dance.

The earliest known English written mention of Morris dance is dated to 1448 and records the payment of seven shillings to Morris dancers by the Goldsmiths' Company in London.

It is danced by a group of dancers wearing bells on their shins or shoes.

People danced this dance in their homes until it became a well known folk dance.
