Our programme: starting on English figure dances with several dances out of the first edition of the English Dancing Master (dances with a chorus or alternate chorus / “verse” dances / atypical dances). In particular we’ll see how the invariants (leading / siding / arming) are organized in these dances, with 4 different sequels of simple and double steps. Longways duple and triple minor sets will take us through a few tricky figures (reels – double eight – cast and lead).
