Madder Mill Molly is a mixed gender Molly team based in the Carshalton/Wallington area, who, after much research and preparation, finally got off the ground at the beginning February 2020. With practice and enthusiasm, we had hoped to be dance-ready for the 2020 season, alas, of course, this was not to be. Like everyone else our plans had to be put on hold.
Now, as rules have relaxed, we have relaunched, which means we are looking for new dancers to join our team. No previous experience is necessary but because of the dance style, anyone joining us as dancer will need to have good knees and hips! Other than that, enthusiasm, and a willingness to help build/be part of a team is all that is asked.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or for further details.
Although we are an adult team, we could consider older accompanied children

WHAT IS MOLLY DANCING?
It is a style of Morris Dancing that originated in East Anglia. No hankies, bells or sticks, but a definite need for disguise.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Not East Anglia but the London Borough of Sutton in the Carshalton /Wallington area
WHERE DO YOU DANCE ?
Once the team is fully up and running we hope to dance at various events and of course a good old dance out at a pub or two!
