Welcome to our website. “Annie’s Fantasies” is a clog morris dance group specialising in the style of dance originating in the Northwest of England. During the summer you’ll see us out and about in Colchester and at dance, arts, and folk festivals all over the place — see our events listing page for more information. The rest of the year we practice on Sunday mornings from 11.00 until 1.00. Our current practice venue is Roman Circus House, between Napier Road and Butt Road in Colchester. We welcome new dancers and musicians, both female and male. See our Contacts page for more contact details.
“Annies” started up in the early 1980s, and were so named because one of the founder members (Annie, of course!) used to have fantastical costume ideas for the side, such as wearing fish costumes and other weird ideas. Someone said “there’s another of Annie’s fantasies!”, and the name stuck!
We have a lot of fun, and don’t take ourselves too seriously. We work hard in our practices and then usually reward ourselves by going to a pub!
