Uptown-on-Calhoun is a mixed-gender morris side based in Minneapolis, MN.

What's a morris side, you ask?

Well, it's a bunch of people who do morris dancing, a traditional English type of street performance. Uptown-on-Calhoun is one of several such groups in the Twin Cities, each of which has its own kind of personality and style. You may see us at street fairs (especially the Powderhorn Park May Day Parade), in various parks, or at local neighborhood festivals, in addition to larger events, such as the Festival of Nations. We like to dance and sing and make loud noises in front of people. So we tie bells around our legs and have an accordion with us most of the time.
