Event description
Workshop 2: La Belle Danse: Baroque Court & Theatre Dance in Beauchamp-Feuïllet Notation - English collections and sources

About this Event

The Historical Dance Society is organising two six hour online workshops on Zoom over two weekends in its Working with the Sources series.

The two workshops are linked but are designed to run as standalone workshops. Please book separately for each workshop.

In this second workshop, Philippa Waite will guide you through the English collections and sources, featuring the work of Tomlinson, Isaac and l’Abbé.

Saturday 6 March 2021,16:30 - 19:30 (GMT - UK time)

Sunday 7 March 2021, 16:30 - 19:30 (GMT - UK time)

The workshop will be interactive, with a combination of presentation and dance instruction, and will give you a chance to try out your own notation interpretation skills.

All levels of experience welcome. Basics will be covered but the workshop will progress on Day 2 to looking at some of the anomalies and difficult to read passages, to challenge more experienced dancers. All in all, by the end of the workshop, you should get a complete overview on what is available and where to go to find the source material you need to delve into the beautiful dances of the Baroque period.

The first workshop will be held on 27-28 February 2021 when Ricardo Barros will take you through the French collections and sources, featuring dances of Feuïllet, Pécour and Balon.
