Description:
An intensive workshop in baroque dance (European ballroom and theatrical dance of the late 17th and early 18th centuries). Classes in technique, repertoire, and dance notation, with opportunities for independent projects.

As in past years, the summer Baroque dance workshop will be allied with the International Baroque Institute at Longy (IBIL). This year’s IBIL theme is “Paris/Versailles—crossroads of Europe”. Dancers are invited to attend IBIL lectures and concerts, and to participate in the IBIL student performance. A portion of the dance workshop will be devoted to preparing dances for this performance.

The dance workshop will focus on French dances that have a Paris/Versailles connection, including dances from Le Mariage de la Grosse Cathos, by Favier. Repertory will include menuets, gavottes, sarabandes, bourrées, and other baroque dance types.

Tuition for the workshops is $350. You may register:

  • In person at the Integrarte front desk
