Early Dance Classes

with Barbara Segal

Barbara holds classes in Baroque & Renaissance Dance in London, around the UK and abroad, for both beginners/elementary and intermediate/advanced students.

Beginners/Elementary

Barbara believes that learning to dance should be a pleasure as well as a learning experience. Her beginners/elementary classes begin with a fun warm up, progress to step practice, then the steps are linked into dances that are within the capabilities of the particular class. Her own evident enjoyment is infectious. After a morning of renaissance dance, the focus shifts in the afternoon to baroque dance.

Intermediate/Advanced

Experienced dancers come to Barbara to learn an increasingly difficult repertoire and to hone their technique. She has many years of experience in early dance, as performer, teacher and choreographer. She has taught in Europe, the Baltic Countries and Australia in addition to courses in the UK. She has also taught early dance on the BA (Hons) degree course in Ballet Education at the Royal Academy of Dance in London. In addition to baroque dance, Barbara also gives courses in renaissance dance; she also teaches baroque gesture for singers.
