Introduction to: Historical Dance

Three spaces left -- register now!

Monday, Oct 19, 6:30pm Pacific

This class is for: Age 8-18—no previous dance experience required. Family members are welcome to join in if you'd like to dance with a partner!

Not your ordinary screen time — get up and dance with us! In Europe during the Renaissance and Baroque periods, people of all ages danced in the fields and cobbled streets, in the ballrooms of stately homes, and in lavish theatrical productions. Beloved Seattle historical dance teacher Anna Mansbridge will teach some fun and easy dances as described in historical publications. Come and experience how people in the past kicked up their heels!

How to prepare for this class: Please wear clothing that is comfortable to move in. You can either dance barefoot or wear flexible shoes with a low heel. Any floor surface is fine, but please make sure that the space is free of lots of objects that can be bumped into or stepped on—you may need to push some furniture out of the way.

Pre-registration is required, below.
