Join Fiona Garlick and John Barnard of Sydney’s Early Dance Consort as they lead you into the elegant world of French baroque dance.
If you love Baroque music, you may have wondered what a
Minuet, Sarabande or Gavotte might look and feel like to dance.
This workshop is the perfect opportunity to step back to the baroque era for a taste of the French noble dances which graced European ballrooms and theatres for nearly a century, and gave the baroque suite its character.
Fiona Garlick and John Barnard will guide you in the technique and distinctive qualities of a selection of baroque dance types, and demonstrate excerpts from original choreographies of the era.
