Renaissance Dance afternoon “Winter Workshop”

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 the pleasures of a bygone age.

  • Watch a demonstration by some of the Courtly Arts Performers in costume.
  • Learn some renaissance dance steps, then put them into practice as we teach you some simple 16th Century dances. Afternoon tea provided.

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Dress: comfortable, casual clothes (not costumes), soft-soled shoes such as ballet / jazz / Jiffies preferred, but not essential.
