Dances of Fashionable Society: Cotillons, quadrilles and country dances from the ballrooms and dance halls of Georgian and Victorian England.

The workshop will cover Regency dances in the morning with country dances and cotillons. In the afternoon we will dance some later quadrilles from the Victorian era.  Studying these dances will help us learn their fundamental moves, footwork, timing and patterns. In dancing together, dancers can get a great sense of teamwork and achievement! All welcome, both beginners and experienced dancers.

The workshop is led by Libby Curzon of Mrs Bennet’s Ballroom to launch the publication by the Historical Dance Society of: Dances of Fashionable Society by Ellis and Christine Rogers. This book and CD is a compilation  by Ellis of his favourite dances originally taught at [D]HDS Summer Schools.
