The Early Dance Consort

Course details

The Course runs between 9.15am and 3.45pm each day. See Schedule.
Each day there will be a pair of morning Renaissance sessions and one afternoon Baroque session. They can be taken separately or combined. Students new to early dance are encouraged to attend the Wednesday sessions, which introduce steps and terms used subsequently. Dances range from sedate to energetic, and each session will include warm-up exercises, deportment, steps, movements and dance figures.
