Early Dance Workshops

Baroque Dance Repertory Workshops

Each session will be self-contained, devoted to a dance or dances reconstructed from baroque dance notation: ballroom dances from the early 18th century that would have been “performed” at elaborate court balls or at private gatherings.  Steps are in a turned-out position, as in ballet, and involve lots of bending and rising, with small or medium jumps. No prior Baroque dance experience is required -- steps needed for the dances will be taught as part of the workshop.

Time: Saturdays 2-4 pm

Renaissance Dance Repertory Workshops

Each session will be self-contained, devoted to one or more French or Italian ballroom dances from around 1600, as described in treatises of the period. Steps are in a “natural” (not turned out) position. Movement quality varies: steps can be smooth or sharp, calm or vigorous. Some dances, like galliards, include lots of jumps; others are closer to the ground. No prior Renaissance dance experience is required -- steps needed for the dances will be taught as part of the workshop.
