On Common Ground 7: Kings and Commoners: Dances of Display for Court, City and Country

All Saints Pastoral Centre, London Colney, St Albans
28-29 March 2009

The conference explored the essential dance of the 18th century, as a solo and a duet, from the 1700s to the 1900s, from the ballroom to the stage and even the silver screen. As well as listening to papers, participants experienced the variety of the minuet in several workshops. The conference proceedings are published by the HDS, containing all the papers except those by Teresa Buckland and Elizabeth Aldrich (see publications pages).
