Discover the art of Renaissance Dance

The Courtly Arts Performers greatly enjoy bringing alive the music and dance of a more chivalrous era – for their audiences and because it’s just great fun to do! Our Discovery Courses provide the opportunity for you to explore and share this the pleasures of a bygone age.

Our courses have two parts:

  • An initial Discovery Session, when you can learn a little about the Renaissance, watch a demonstration of a renaissance dance performed by senior members of the CAPV in full costume, get to try some steps and learn a simple dance or two, and
  • A Discovery Course over the following three weeks, during which you will learn several simple renaissance dances, culminating in a short performance. Of course, you can undertake these classes just for the fun of learning an unfamiliar dance style, but we will also be quietly talent spotting. If you are keen to try out to become a member of the Courtly Arts Performers, it will be a huge advantage if you have attended this course.
