Baroque Dances 1690-1780

Small baroqueDancers dressed in beautiful period costumes perform Baroque dances recapturing the elegance of courtly French Menuets, Bourees, Allemands, Gigues, Sarabands, Loures, Cotillions, and lively English Country Dances and reels that Europeans loved to dance. The program includes proper deportment, etiquette and conversation of eighteenth century ladies and gentlemen.

Chorégraphie Antique can present the same informative presentation structuring the first person narrative form into a lecture/demonstration with audience participation. Both the concert and lecture-demonstration format can be performed to taped music.
