Baroque Dancing (free)

  • This location is shown only to members

Following the fascinating Georgians Revealed exhibition at the British Library  (the curator is an early dancer herself), we have been offered a free workshop by the Covent Garden Minuet Company. We will be joined by the V&A and Young Georgians.

See CGMC in action here and in Osterley. They were also in the BBC4 Rococo documentary at Waddesdon Manor.

No previous experience is required. Normal work clothes and shoes are fine, although flats are better than heels.

The Swiss Church is a Grade 2 listed building in Covent Garden. We will meet directly at the church.

    So sorry not have made this. Just impossible with the TFL situation today I'm afraid! Hope you all had fun.

    A Fun Event & Location I was looking forward to.
    Sadly I am not able to attend, due to a recently occured sore Knee. My apology.

    I've changed my RSVP to add one friend, also a viol player (have also sent this to the Covent Garden Minuet Company). Unfortunately, neither she nor I can get free to travel hugely far ahead of time, so between the projected storm and the strike, we might have trouble getting there from Greenwich/Lewisham in time. Oh dear! I'll try my very best.

    Really hoping to make it to this. Will depend on the day on work - and the tube strike - but hope so!

    Looks like fun, and I will be bringing another Baroque music enthusiast with me, my usual (male) dancing partner.
