Dances of the Italian Renaissance: Exploring Fifteenth and Sixteenth Century Dance.
Friday 14th to Monday 17th July 2023 or Friday 14th to Friday 21st July at Bromsgrove School, Bromsgrove, West Midlands.
We offer a choice of a 15th or 16th Century dance course. The longer course is aimed at those with previous experience and some knowledge of the step vocabulary. The weekend course offer an excellent introduction to historical dance. Please note that the 15th century weekend dance course will now be run by Letizia Dradi as Hazel Dennison has sadly had to withdraw.
Participants will study with their chosen tutor in daily classes, to develop technique and learn a selection of dances. A varied choice of afternoon workshops led by course tutors and other specialists will offer an opportunity to enrich your experience. Sociable evening activities will include informal dancing, talks and activities, with Tuesday afternoon free to rest or explore this beautiful and historic region. Each course will conclude with a celebration to share dances learned, for which you may wear a costume of the period (not obligatory).
