NATHANIEL GOW QUADRILLE WORKSHOP 2

Sat 11 Nov

£20.00

Event Information Buy Tickets

Violinist/band leader Nathaniel Gow and Dancing Master Barclay Dun led a revolution in Scottish Dance. Having introduced the capital to French Quadrilles in 1817, they incorporated these into the annual balls at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms. In 1818, Dun published a collection of dance instructions in English, to be read in conjunction with Gow's scores (including dance instructions in French).

This all-day workshop will cover Barclay Dun's 3rd Set of four Quadrilles, plus some extra Scottish Country Dances. Comfortable soft shoes recommended. All levels of dancer welcome - no experience necessary. Led by Talitha MacKenzie & Alena Shmakova (Les Danses Antiques).

A booking fee of £1 is charged per transaction for online and phone bookings. No booking fee is applied to tickets purchased in person from the Scottish Storytelling Centre Box
