The new session begins on January 10, 2019!
Contra dances and quadrilles
With Anne-Marie Gardette and Pierre Chartrand
Group class (beginner)
Anne-Marie Gardette and Pierre Chartrand will lead a series of workshops on the old and more recent dances that were practiced both in this region as well as a little further afield, in northeastern North America.
The workshop will explore the essential 18th-century book Livre de contredances (or Manuscrit de Trois-Rivières), which includes dance steps and figures specific to French contradances (or “square” dances). We will also have a look at the English forms of contradance practiced in the New World in the 18th and 19th centuries.
