Course Content

This six day course will cover the technique, presentation and notation of Baroque dance and is designed for all levels from the absolute beginner to the professional dancer.  No previous dance experience is necessary, although any knowledge of other dance forms will enable you to pick up the steps more easily.

Those new to Baroque dance will be taught basic steps, patterns, and musical rhythms, with opportunities for talks on the history, costume and context of the dances.  More advanced students will be taught according to their level, with opportunities to work in more detail on their basic technique as well as on more challenging material.

Classes will run Sunday to Friday, usually 9:30–4:00, with evenings free, and a break for lunch.  Note that lunch is not provided; please bring your lunch as there are no restaurants or grocery stores nearby.

Partial Attendance

Participants are welcome to attend the workshop for a few days.  However it is suggested that, if possible, complete beginners attend from the beginning of the course, when there will be more opportunities to look in detail at the basic steps and elements of style.  Please contact Judy if you wish to discuss this.
