Dance improves your all-round physical ability, mental effectiveness and active longevity.
The Times said: 'If you play a sport like football or rugby, your resistance to injury will be significantly improved by having joints, muscles and movements that are better trained by dance. Dancers are capable of explosive, rapid movement and sensational spatial awareness. And they live longer.'
On two separate occasions I have had the pleasure of interrupting a ball that I was calling to announce to the assembled company that two of the guests had just become engaged! What more romantic setting could you possibly have?
If you have watched the BBC adaption of Pride and Prejudice you know how critical dancing was to the life of young people 200 years ago
Dance shows ability - the Duke of Wellington insisted that all his Officers should be able to dance. Not only was it important for the diplomatic aspects of life in a regiment on campaign, but if they could not dance neatly and efficiently they were either slow-witted or weak-limbed - in either case they were unfit to command in battle
By coming to the workshops you will get an 'inside track' on all the many, many Regency Balls, Routs and Soirées that are being held throughout the year in the UK, across Europe and worldwide. Do you fancy a Regency Ball in Wichester, Worcester or Warwick? Or want to indulge in week's holiday with Regency Dancing in Budapest, Florence, or San Francisco? Learn where, when and how.
The cost is £5 (GBP) per workshop.
You are welcome to just drop in, though we are usually following a theme or preparing for a specific event so you will get more out of it if you come regularly.
Some weeks we may be away at one of our balls and sometimes there may not be places available, so please check and also make sure you are on our mailing list.
All the dances I teach have been carefully researched and the steps and figures are historically consistent. All the dances are also listed in my website RegencyDances.org so you can study and practice on your own if you wish
