Bach and the Dance
October 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until October 31, 2020
Join Catherine Turocy, Artistic Director of The New York Baroque Dance Company and James Richman, Artistic Director of the Dallas Bach Society, as they dance through the music of Bach.
This is an active dance class teaching basic steps and phrases for dance forms found in Bach’s music. With eight one hour classes, students can pick and choose which classes they would like to take or take the whole session.
Drawing from her experience with choreographing to Bach’s music as well as over 4 decades of research into Baroque Dance, Catherine is delighted to join her husband, James Richman, who will give a brief introduction to the music at the beginning of class. Catherine will proceed to teach the dance steps of the form emphasizing rhythm, tempo and phrasing. Questions will be taken at the end of the class.
This is a dance class for music and dance lovers, if you can walk, you can dance! Or, if you prefer, observe and gain a new way of “seeing” Bach.
