New London Assembly

Week Two, July 21-28, 2019
Brad Foster, Director, with Andrew Shaw

Festival Registration opens November 15, 2019

An All-day program of classes, lectures, and evening dancing. Learn traditional English country dances and learn about the 17th-century country dances they 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 with Amherst Early Music Festival and take both NLA and AEMF workshops.

Dance tuition $575
