“So glad to have Higham willing to run courses like this.”
“An excellent day. It was challenging and intriguing to partake in the dances, and experience the effect of costume and culture on the dance. Thank you too for all the incidental but valuable background information. Though sadly no longer able to dance as in younger years, I thoroughly enjoyed participating and learning so much.”

More early dance: a follow on from previous day courses, although it will not be necessary to have attended those. This time the focus will be on dances from 16th and early 17th century Italy in which some lively footwork seems more like Spanish dancing!
