English Regency Dances are the Cotillions, Quadrilles, Country Dances and Waltzes of the English Regency Era, circa 1750-1830.
You will have seen dancing from this period in the BBC Series 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Poldark' (which uses some of my music) and more recently the BBC documentary 'My Friend Jane' (where I called the ball).
There are thousands of dances to choose from. My other website RegencyDances.org lists almost 2,000 dances alone. We have plenty of choice and we can choose the ones that are most fun, most elegant or most energetic, as we wish.
This is the time of Jane Austen, Lord Nelson, George Prince Regent, the Duke of Wellington and Beau Brummell. The ladies were beautiful and the gentlemen, especially the soldiers in their dress regimentals, were handsome.
A big advantage of Regency Dancing is that you dance in sets, not just couples, so you get to meet and dance with all the pretty girls (or dishy men). Come and join us - it's good fun!
