!5th century dances

Postby Marcus Woodhouse » Sat Nov 07, 2009 3:43 pm

I will not be sword swinging much next season as I need reconstructive surgery on my right shoulder (as a result of playing too much hurling as a wean). I would like to learn some dances approp to WOTR period (a little earlier or later would be fine.)
Does anyone know of a book or ideally a CD/book combo that might get me started? Many thanks to all. Marcus.

Try Eschewynge of Idlenesse by Gaita, which is book of dances and companion CD from on the Gresley Manuscript, c. 1500. I've got this and very good it is too. They've also done a more recent book and CD called Whatsoever You Will, which I haven't heard but features European dances from late 15th century. See www.gaita.co.uk

Hi Patience,

If you are looking for a local tutor contact the Early Dance Circle or the Dolmetsch Historical Dance Society. They have information about groups who practise near to where you live.
