    Dancing masters such as Gottfried Taubert in 1717 and Henry Cellarius in the 1840s both encourage a sense of “play” in the ballroom. In this year’s workshop we will look at historical dance and period concepts of creativity, improvisation and the responsibility of the dancer / performer to express their individual style while dancing.

    Jennifer Meller (Renaissance), Catherine Turocy (Baroque) and Richard Powers with Joan Walton assisting (19th and early 20th century) will teach popular early dances as we explore the hard science of reconstruction mixed with the creative performance expected by each time period.

    Professional dancers, teachers, students, historic dancers, musicians, ballroom dancers are all welcome!
