Restoring the Steps to Playford’s Country Dance
Cecil Sharp House, Camden, London on Saturday 29th November 3.00-6.00pm
At this year’s AGM there will be an inviting - and free - workshop led by Chair, Anne Daye, to explore the steps used in country dances published by Playford, restoring them to the figures of the dance for dancers of today. The dances will be chosen from the Restoration period (c1660-1700) when both the older style and the new French style were in evidence. Music will be provided by Ian Cutts on violin.
You don’t need to be a DHDS member to join the workshop - although we rather hope that non members will think of joining!
We welcome all enthusiasts for English country dance to what we are sure will be an informative and enjoyable experience.
