Study Days: Working with the Sources
At the heart of our dancing lie the original sources and their reconstruction. The Historical Dance Society has always sought to develop understanding of these in the light of current knowledge as the basis for informed teaching and the publication of dance instructions. We now launch a series of study days exploring key sources for Renaissance dance, led by experts in each field. Both theoretical and practical, the study days will support those who teach or lead dancing and interest those who wish to extend understanding of the dances they enjoy.
