The Albemarle Morris Men are a dance troupe engaging in Morris dancing, a traditional English folk dance. They were founded in 1978 and dance in and around Charlottesville.

The Albemarle Morris Men dance in the Cotswold Morris style, derived from the dances of Bledington, Gloucestershire.[1] The costumes of the troupe have changed over time but often include colorful sashes and bells. The current attire is blue jeans, tail coats, and various accessories. Each dance involves six dancers and several musicians.

The group notably has included Charlottesville mayor Dave Norris[2] and anti-Meadowcreek Parkway activist Peter Kleeman.[3]
