18th and 19th Century Dances (Marjorie McLaughlin)
Dance like it's 1749, or even 1816! This class is part lecture, part dancing as we reconstruct The Montgomeries' Rant from the 1749 Menzies Manuscript, and one or two dances from Thomas Wilson's 1816 Companion to the Ballroom. We'll look at differences in dancing style and etiquette, and explore some interesting interpretations of the old dances that affect how we dance them today.
Drewry/Neglected Dances (Jimmie Hill)
Description will be added soon.
Have a Ball at the Ball (Robert McOwen)
