Dance Academy‎ > ‎

Book us to join you

In addition to putting on classes, festivals and other events of its own, the musicians and dancers of the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy can contribute performances to shows which you are organising. We can customise them to meet your requirements be it for entertainment at a school, a fayre, a festival, a gallery, a living-history event, a wedding or a commercial function.  We can display (and/or get participation in) dances from any period (and nearly any land) from 1450 through to 1900 and match most period themes you might imagine (be it Italian Renaissance, English Elizabethan, French Baroque, German Rococo, English Regency, Australian Colonial, Russian Imperial etc).  We prefer to perform indoors but can perform outdoors on suitable surfaces in the shade. Depending on your needs, we can offer just a few members of the academy to lead, show, talk and/or play, or offer a 5-piece musical ensemble and a dozen fully costumed dancers. See our dancers page for photos from past performances.
Please contact John [see bio page] or Aylwen [see bio page] on (02) 62811098 or 0409 817 623 to discuss your needs and obtain a quote. 
Inquirers from outside Canberra are encouraged to anticipate covering not just performance fee but also the cost for transport and accomodation for troupe dancers and musicians.
If inquirers want a lasting record of dances enjoyed they are encouraged to ask about the books & CD that we have available that may be of most relevance to a particular show.
