Norwich Early Dance performing at the Early Dance Circle Festival

Norwich Historical Dance

Norwich Historical Dance continues a great tradition of social dance in Norfolk. We dance for our own pleasure and for audiences to discover this less well known aspect of our cultural heritage, both by watching and by taking part. We aim to place the dances in their social and historical context and we perform in costume, often with live music.

NHD dance at Norwich High School for Girls on Thursdays in term time. Please check via ‘contacts’ for up to date times and location in the school. We also run a ‘weekend away’ dance workshop, usually in the spring. Norwich Historical Dance is delighted to inform you that Kath Waters, professional dance lecturer and well known performer, will be the tutor for our next course running from 5 to 7 April 2024. The venue will be the peaceful and expansive campus of the University of East Anglia with its unique Sainsbury Centre art museum. The course will cover Renaissance and Playford dances.

We run the Playford Ball every November in Norwich Assembly House and once again all tickets have been sold. NHD are regular participants in the Early Dance Circle Festival which this year takes place in Hereford.

We are always happy to meet new members and we’d love you to join us.
