From Bach to the Balkans
with Mandy de Winter and Judy King at Wydale Hall, near Scarborough, North YorkshireCome and join Mandy and Judy on this wonderful course doing what they love and do best!
From Bach will be taught by Judy who simply loves dancing with her whole body and soul to classical music. There are many beautiful circle dances which have been choreographed to some stunning pieces of music. It won’t just be Bach- we will dance to music by Mozart, Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann ……. as well as to some ‘modern’ classical composers.
Most of the dances are gentle and relaxing with an occasional burst of higher energy! All the steps are simple and accessible - thus enabling you to fully engage with the deeply moving music.
….to the Balkans will be taught by Mandy whose love of Balkan music and dance is simply infectious. She has a unique way of imparting her knowledge of these
exciting and unique rhythms through her inspired choice of dances and when immersed in these dances, dances with the dust of the country on the soles of her feet. She will also lead us in a song or two.
The contrasting styles of music and dance coupled with Mandy and Judy’s complementary teaching styles will make this a very special way to spend the bank holiday.
