Dramatic Country Dances of Thomas Bray

Friday 29 January - Sunday 31 January 2016
High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Herts, EN11 8SG
Course Director – Barbara Segal
Although related in style to the dances collected by John Playford, those of Thomas Bray (1699) were probably designed for the stage and as a result, their unusual patterns show a marked sense of drama. The combination of their complex patterns with elegant steps makes them a joy to dance. They pose something of a challenge for more experienced dancers, while at the same time providing a rewarding experience for everyone.

Places are limited, so book early. Final date for booking: 5 December 2015.
