“Hail, spirit-stirring Waltz!” wrote Lord Byron 1813….

This workshop will explore different ways of “waltzing”...


…meaning originally turning around the dance floor, there will be opportunities to dance in group dances, couple dances and solo moments of expressive dance – including learning the techniques of leading and following, stepping in rhythm, and weaving under arms!

Led by Darren Royston, with dance demonstrations from European Ballroom Champions; Alison & Nick Gallagher-Hughes, this will be a "Strictly" style historical dance day.

Come try it out, and remember dancing of days gone by.  Periods will include circle dance of Medieval period, La Volta of Elizabethan period, Duke of Kent’s waltz from the Regency period, and the Viennese Waltz of the Nineteenth century.
