New London Assembly will run week two of the Amherst Early Music Festival

An All-day program of classes, lectures, and evening dancing. Learn about historical 17th-century country dances and the modern dances they have inspired. You can also take a music class if you wish. Over the five years of our existence we've developed a culture of strong attention to detail during the daytime workshops and spirited community recreational dance in the evenings. One of the special attractions of this week are the excellent Amherst Early Music Festival concerts that occur almost every night. The program is able to accommodate 60 dancers. We offer four daytime workshop periods; in addition, AEMF has occasional Salon lectures and concerts in the late afternoon. Please note: it is possible to combine registrations and take both NLA and Central Program classes.
