The Early Dance Consort

Course Details

The Course runs between 9.15am and 3.45pm each day. See Schedule.
Renaissance and Country Dances are offered in two morning sessions each day, with Baroque Dance in the afternoons. These can be taken separately, or in combination. Students new to early dance are encouraged to attend from Wednesday, as the earlier sessions introduce steps, figures & terms used later in the week.


Upper Hall, 181 Blues Point Road, North Sydney
A short walk from North Sydney Station: going South down Blues Point Road from North Sydney Station (which is on the corner of Blue Street and Miller Street/Blues Point Road). Hall is on left-hand-side just before you reach Lavender Street.

What to wear

Light comfortable clothes which give freedom of movement. Shoes need not be special dance shoes, but should be secure and comfortable, preferably without a rubber sole. Renaissance dance sessions are best done in flat shoes such as ballet flats, jazz shoes or light street shoes. For Baroque sessions shoes with small heels (1cm-4cm high) and straps/laces are preferred.

Course requirements

No previous dance experience is required, nor do you need to bring a partner.

Light refreshments will be provided for morning tea. Students should bring plenty of drinking water.

If staying for the day, please bring or buy lunch (there are shops and take-aways nearby).
