Where: The Minuet Company
– Covent Garden
Secretly, who hasn’t watched Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice or one of the other grand period dramas and thought they’d like to party Regency style? If only there was a place where one could get a wig on, don some satin, powder up that face and prance. What now? There is such a place? Prey tell…
The Covent Garden Minuet Company are all about that kind of action. With a fondness for the customs, dances and splendour of the era, the Covent Garden based group run classes, tutorials and shows of their work. To organise a taster class, or sign up for a full semester (courses roughly follow the school timetable and cost £100 per term) get in touch with them on their website.
