The Historical Dance program will run during the first week of the Amherst Early Music Festival. The dates of the first week of the Festival are August 7-14, 2022, but dancers arrive 1 day early to prepare for opera performance on Friday, August 12.
For over twenty-five years the historical dance program has been a highly successful part of the Amherst Early Music Festival, itself the largest festival of its kind in the world. Students particularly enjoy the opportunity for performance, along with stimulating classes by dance historians and performers.
