Historical dance class
Learn English dances from Tudor to Regency periods: some as energetic as Scottish, some as slow as sequence, all with good tunes . . . Taught by friendly experienced tutor; all levels welcome. No partner, costume or previous experience necessary. Light comfortable clothes recommended, and flexible footwear . . . No need to book, but before your first visit, check with tutor that class is still happening -- very rarely, floods or other problems force the class to be altered . . £5, pay on door . . . Musicians also welcome: we practise for an hour before the class. Music provided; bring your own music stand. Who wouldn't like to try dances called Stingo, The Girdle of Venus, or The Friar in the Well? . . . (Photo shows dancers from Bridport and other groups in Tudor Great Hall of Barrington Court, NT, where special historical dancing events are held in winter.)
