Adults
Suggested Attire
Wear soft-soled shoes (for example, jazz shoes, dance sneakers, or t-strap teaching sandals) and comfortable dance clothing.

Each session will be self-contained, devoted to a dance or dances reconstructed from baroque dance notation: ballroom dances from the early 18th century that would have been “performed” at elaborate court balls or at private gatherings. Steps are in a turned-out position, as in ballet, and involve lots of bending and rising, with small or medium jumps. No prior Baroque dance experience is required — steps needed for the dances will be taught as part of the workshop.
