About the class:

Baroque dance for beginner.

We will study French baroque dance as danced at the courts of the 17th and 18th century nobility. We will „taste“ easier forms of theatrical dance, such as bourrée or rigaudon, as well as social dances using more complicated steps which have been recorded in the dance manuals by A. Lorin or R.-A. Feuillet.

What to wear:

Everybody should bring soft dancing shoes and comfortable clothes (T-shirts, trousers, jogging trousers, leggings, the ladies also long full skirts, as well). At the concluding performance, a Baroque costume, or a token costume in the period style should be worn (gentlemen: breeches, broad-sleeved shirts, waistcoats, semi-high thick heel shoes; ladies: broad-sleeved shirts, long full skirts). Bring with you also things which could be lent to the other dancers, please.

Maximum number of students 20.


Teaching languages: Czech, Italian, English
