Dances from the Fans – dance workshop

September 15, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Not only did a fan keep you cool in a heated ballroom and allow secret messaging but those printed with dance instructions made an essential aide-memoire for the forgetful dancer hoping to impress. We have selected a mix of fast and slow dances from the surviving paper fans of the 1790s, making an interesting dancing session for all Jane Austen ‘fans’! No experience or partner necessary but soft, low heeled/flat non-slip shoes essential. Period costume and fans welcome and bring plenty to drink. Instruction by the Jane Austen Dancers. Good understanding of English is necessary.
