What was dancing like when Dronfield’s Hall Barn opened in medieval times?
Now you can find out and actually try it for yourself as part of a dance workshop which will be held in the Barn’s iconic upstairs gallery.
“The setting is perfect” said dance teacher Andrea Powell, who will be running the workshop.
“In medieval times dances tended to be developed from a set of fairly simple steps and as a result everyone could join in. And that’s what we will be aiming for in the workshop – everyone can have a go and the result should be lively demonstration of what dancing was like in the days when The Barn was built.”
She added: “No experience is necessary and the workshop really is open to all – young and old, men and women. All you need is a pair of lightweight flat shoes and if you want to dress up we’ll provide a long skirt for the ladies.”
The workshop will be held on the Saturday of the Festival (May 5) from 1pm to 2.30pm and is FREE.To secure your place, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with your full contact details.
