Workshop Content

Using extracts from a number of 17th and 18th century Baroque dance notations, in a variety of rhythms, these workshops will focus on basic technique and style, including the ways the motions of the arms and head plus different musical interpretations can enhance the performance of dances in the Baroque style. The workshops will be suitable for dancers, musicians, and those with an interest in the theater, opera, ballet or social dancing of the late 17th & early 18th centuries.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes (not excessively tight) and, if possible, flexible shoes.  Dance shoes are not required, but if you own a selection, a flat pair or a pair with small heels is preferable to a pair with high heels (jazz shoes rather than character shoes, and no ladies' high heel ballroom dance shoes).
