Education & Research
Our members enjoy recreating the dances of court & country house, tavern & theatre from across Western Europe, based on detailed descriptions in original sources. An interest in historical dance opens doors to the styles of the great dancing masters of England, Italy, France & Spain. It also sparks a wider appreciation of the music, costume and food of various periods.
