Pat Shaw Dances - Sunday Afternoon Workshops in Maidstone
2017 is the centenary of Pat Shaw's birth. As well as being an amazing choreographer, Pat Shaw researched and interpreted dances from 17th, 18th and early 19th century Dancing Masters, including Playford of course. He also researched traditional English dances collected in the early 20th century. To celebrate Pat Shaw's amazing work we are running a monthly series of two-hour workshops on Sunday afternoons in Maidstone. While his repertoire includes some simple dances, many of them have interesting challenges, but they are all great fun. Please spread the word to as many dancers as you can.
