Sat. 6 to Mon. 8 October - A long-weekend of Dance in the Age of Enlightenment 
We journeyed from the belle danse of Versailles, through the country dance as it tripped across Europe, explored the evolution of the minuet and enjoyed the cotillions craze before moving on to the no-rules Allemande that turned into the waltz. We enjoyed this rare opportunity to learn the French steps and style so central to everything our dance heritage with teacher John Gardiner-Garden.
