4th Annual Baroque Dance Workshop with Instructor Philippa Waite (sponsored by San Francisco Renaissance Voices)
San Francisco Renaissance Voices is delighted to once again host the internationally-renowned choreographer, performer and teacher of Baroque dance, Philippa Waite for a Baroque Dance Workshop; this workshop is LOW-IMPACT and designed for both the novice and experienced dancer.

The workshop will include instruction in some of the more typical dance steps used in the main Baroque dance rhythms, e.g., sarabande, bourée and menuet and will focus on using these steps to enhance Country Dances of the period found in sources such as Thomas Bray's Country Dances (1699) and various editions of Playford's The Dancing Master. Experienced students will be taught more complex step variations, however, the emphasis will be on the style, technique and performance and not on the ability to memorize them. The workshop will also include short demonstrations, given by Ms. Waite to highlight some of the features of style and presentation covered in the workshop.

The workshop is ideal for Country Dancers, musicians, beginning Baroque dancers, and those with an interest in the theater, opera, ballet or social dancing of the late 17th and early 18th centuries.

Ms. Waite studied with Wendy Hilton and taught for her at the annual Baroque Music and Dance Workshops at Stanford University.  Ms. Waite is currently guest teacher of Period Movement and Dance at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Cardiff, and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. She is Artistic Director of Consort de Danse Baroque and as such choreographs in the Baroque style for the company's productions; she also teaches, performs and gives lecture-demonstrations throughout the UK and abroad.
