The Dance Centre Presents DISCOVER DANCE!

Historical Performance Ensemble
Thursday September 21, 12 noon

Scotiabank Dance Centre, 677 Davie St., Vancouver


Experience the elegance, courtly manners and discreet wit of dance from centuries past. Historical Performance Ensemble presents authentically recreated social and theatrical European Baroque dances, incorporating beautifully constructed costumes, and entrancing music played onstage by specialists on reproductions of period instruments.  The performers will demonstrate some of the intricate dances that preceded the development of ballet, from an era which was formative to the modern world.
