Norwich Historical Dance
Norwich Historical Dance continue 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.
It is very disappointing that we are still unable to meet up and dance together because of Covid-19. However our Tutor, Amanda, is sending out weekly tutorials to us to keep us on our toes and maintain our dancing skills. We keep in touch on social media, by e.mail and Zoom and we meet in small groups for socially distanced walks. We also created a short video called “Dancing in the Time of Plague” set in 15th century Italy, for the 2020 Early Dance Circle Festival which went ‘On-Line’. Over 25 groups entered presentations. See the Early Dance Circle Festival on the ‘EVENTS’ page for more information.
We are always looking for new members, so we’d love you to join us.
