Dancing occasional Sunday afternoons, 13:30 to 16:00. Mainly second Sunday of the month: please check in advance. £5 per session.
Over the year we learn English dances from mediaeval to Victorian times, working mainly on one period at a time. For example, January-June 2017, dances of the 18th century, practising for a Georgian Assembly in June. Could be described as Playford with extra steps, plus cotillions and a taste of minuet. Ever wondered where Playford comes from? We also do country dances Tudor-style plus Italian court dances and the flamboyant coranto. Good challenge, great fun.
