Baroque chamber repertoire is imbued with movements which, although not necessarily are meant to be danced, are based on dance movements. This course will provide music coaching with an informed approach in dance (character, tempi, articulation, and phrasing), so you know to differ your minuets from your sarabandes, your bourées from your gavottes, and chaconnes from passacailles! The course will cater for solo instrumentalists and singers, as well as ensembles formed during the main course. Some movement/steps will be thrown in too for good measure! We also hope for collaboration with the concurrent Baroque chamber music and madrigal courses in the evenings.
