In 2019 we celebrate our 10th Summer
Course, first held in 2010. New and returning
students are invited to explore and enjoy a
selection of dances from the Renaissance,
Baroque, and 18th Century eras, in all their
elegance and vigour. They can tell us much
about society, fashion, and music of the past, and provide a context for more recent dance forms, all part of the universal human desire to express joy through music and movement.
The course runs from Wednesday 9th to Friday 11th January, between 9.15am and 3.45pm each day. The venue is 181 Blues Point Road, North Sydney (close to trains and buses at North Sydney Station).
- Please note that there is an early-bird enrolment period ending on Friday 21st December, so don’t miss out.
Please note that early-bird enrolment for the 2018 Summer Course closes on December 15. See below or go to Summer 2018 page for enrolment details.
Our 7th Summer Course in Renaissance & Baroque Dance is just one month away, 6-8 January, 2016.

Just a reminder that Early-bird enrolments for the Summer Course close Friday 19 December (just after the Christmas Party). Don’t miss out on our very reasonable pre-Christmas prices.
You might even think about enrolling a loved one in the Course as a Christmas present, or treating yourself to something entirely different for the Summer break….
