“… You may not recognise these men, but they are responsible for some of the most influential books on dance ever written. You’ll have a rare chance to hold originals of these books and enjoy dances from them (and from many other books and manuscripts that survive from between 1450 and 1760) in a series of 10 Saturday mornings classes running from 9:30am to 12:15 from Sat. 23 November to Sat. 8 February (skipping only the Saturday of the Christmas Carol Ball and the Saturday between Christmas & New Year). …

The first 5 workshops will focus on Renaissance sources & developments and lead up to a Twelfth Night Revel and the next 5 on Baroque era sources & developments and lead up to a St.Valentine’s Ball. The venue is the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy studio in Yarralumla, with its garden in full flower and a refreshment table ready from 9am. Expert tuition & warm hospitality offered by John & Aylwen Gardiner-Garden. Participants are welcome to stay on for lunch.”
