Shaking with Shakespeare:
Court and Country dances 
from the Early Modern Period

 Saturday 29th April 2017,  2pm – 5pm

RADA Studios, 16 Chenies Street, WC1E

 

 

As the French Duke comments in Shakespeare’s play King Henry V:

They bid us to the English dancing schools,
And teach Lavoltas high, and swift Corantos,
Saying our grace is only in our heals
And that we are most lofty runaways.

 Come runaway with us on International Dance Day and cut a caper at RADA,  where you will get to dance a variety of Elizabethan choreographies including measures “full of state and ancientry”, “nimble” galliards and country dances for “as many as will.”

On this UNESCO Day of International Dance we will present an English take on the European dances from Arbeau’s Orchesography to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday and England’s Patron Saint, St. George.

Participants at this workshop may wish to attend the performance of WORLD DANCE launching the UNESCO London Section of the International Dance Council where Nonsuch will also be performing Historical Dances. 

Price: £20, Concessions £15
