Dancing queen. a baroque dance indulgence
In this workshop we will use simple elements of baroque and renaissance dance and turn them into a queer indulgence. After all, what can be queerer than a veritable baroque ball? This will not only be great campy fun. We switch into new personas that we create during the workshop. Let’s hold court to address questions such as: how can we move with grace and dignity? Who would we each invite in to staff our respective personal court? How to court someone with proper style? And finally, how can we transition from this back into our everyday lives?
