Members of the Early Dance Consort will (sometime) be appearing in another concert with Consort 8. Originally scheduled for 6.00pm on Saturday 7 August, at St Paul's Anglican Church in Burwood, the concert is postponed due to the current Greater Sydney COVID-19 lockdown, with a date yet to be announced. It will be part of celebrations for the 150th Anniversary of the Church. See  for more information. Concert Flyer

Evening Classes in Court Dance 2021

CLASSES will continue in 2021 under a COVID-19 Safety Plan
subject to NSW Government Health regulations

2021 Evening Classes - term 4?
Please see Class Schedule for the 2021 Class Program in North Sydney. We ended Term 2 one week early, anticipating the COVID-19 "Stay at Home" orders, and had hoped to resume at some stage in Term 3.
However, the prevalence of the highly contagious Delta strain has meant that has been out of the question.
So we hope to continue at some point in Term 4, should regulations permit. We will then operate under a new COVID-19 Safety Plan, with physical distancing (hands free of course) observing the usual hygiene precautions and subject to the further advice of the NSW Department of Health. 
It is essential that you let us know if you'd like to attend, as we need to limit numbers, and provide your mobile number and email address. You will need the Service NSW smartphone app to scan our QR code and check in and out of classes, for tracing purposes. We encourage you to get your vaccination, which may become a pre-requisite of attendance at classes. We also strongly advise you to wear a mask when travelling on public transport, and in class if preferred or required, as well as use hand sanitiser regularly. Please bring your own water and snacks, and get a COVID-19 test and stay home if you are at all unwell, or have been exposed to any recent contact, hotspot or travel risks, following all NSW Health guidelines.

2021 Summer Course - The Early Dance Consort

2021 Summer Course 6 to 8 January CANCELLED as of 31 December 2020

Sadly, the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney in December led to our decision to cancel the course out of concern for the health of all involved. A sincere thank you to everyone who was planning to come, from near and far. We missed seeing you all at what was to have been our 12th Summer Course, and hope to meet up again before too long.
