Much secular Renaissance music has associated dances and songs. In this two-hour workshop participants will learn several period dances including bransles, pavans and almans from Italian, French and English traditions. The class will conclude with dancing to live music performed by the Borealis consort and guests. No prior dance experience is required, however comfortable shoes are a must. Class size is limited to 24 people. Dance Mistress Cath Jackel has taught Renaissance dance for more than 25 years. The Borealis Consort is a group of Edmonton musicians with a particular interest in renaissance dance music.
