Courtly Tradition Gets a Revival
A British expert on Baroque dancing visited Moscow to pass on her knowledge of the centuries-old steps. By Alastair Gee for The Moscow Times

Last weekend, as snow gusted outside, an unusual master class took place in a brightly lit dance studio. With wall-length mirrors reflecting their movements and stately classical music lending an atmosphere of refinement, the 15 participants were learning Baroque and English country dances that were popular in aristocratic circles in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

The two-day class was led by renowned British dance historian Diana Scrivener, on a break from her usual teaching duties at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts.
