Book us to join you
In addition to putting on classes, festivals and other events of its own, the musicians and dancers of the Earthly Delights Historic Dance Academy can contribute performances to shows which you are organising. We can customise them to meet your requirements be it for entertainment at a school, a faire, a festival, a gallery, a living-history event, a wedding or a commercial function. We can display and/or get participation in dances from any period and many lands. We can focus on a particular period and place (be it Renaissance Italy, Elizabethan England, Baroque France, Rococo Germany, Regency London, Civil War America, Colonial Australia etc) or more generally tour Medieval Europe, put on a Dickensian Christmas show, time-travelling through 5 centuries from 1400 to 1900, or just have a good time together! We prefer to perform indoors but can perform outdoors on suitable surfaces in the shade. Depending on your needs, we can offer just a few members of the academy to lead, show, talk and/or play, or offer a 5-piece musical ensemble and a dozen fully costumed dancers. See our dancers page for photos from past performances.
Inquirers from outside Canberra are encouraged to anticipate covering not just performance fee but also the cost for transport and accomodation for troupe dancers and musicians.
If inquirers want a lasting record of dances enjoyed they are encouraged to ask about the books & CD that we have available that may be of most relevance to a particular show.
