Our first event of 2020 was the Pride and Prejudice Tea Dance in the Lion Ballroom, Leominster. Dancers arrived from Oxford and Cardiff and all places in between, to dance a selection of carefully chosen dances led by Dancing Master, Brian Stanton. Music was provided by Peter and Moira of Dampiers Round.
We found out that a Buskin is not only the name of an 18th century dance but it refers to the laces of a type of footwear worn at the time…..even by Robinson Crusoe, as described by Daniel Defoe. It’s amazing what you learn with Worcestershire Early Music!
