Baronial Dance Workshops

"There is nothing so necessary for men as dancing...Without dancing a man can do nothing...All the disasters of mankind, all the fatal misfortunes that histories are so full of, the blunders of politicians, the miscarriages of great commanders, all this comes from want of skill in dancing..." 
                — Moliere's Dancing Master

Come learn dances from Renaissance Italy, France and England! No experience necessary -- all dances will be taught. Styles range from the rustic bransles of France to the elaborately choreographed balli of late 16th-century Italy to the country dances of Jacobean England. To learn more about Renaissance dance, visit Del's Dance Book or the SCA Dance home page.

Dance practice will be held (usually) on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 7pm-9:30pm

Practice is in the Michigan League. Parking is available in the Palmer Commons garage or on the street.

If you are looking for more opportunities to dance, the Saltatoris Dance Guild in the neighboring Barony of Northwoods has a weekly dance practice on Fridays.

If you would like more information on opportunities to dance with Cynnabar, please e-mail our Dance Master.  You can also sign up for our dancing mailing list for information about dance events.
