About this event

What is Baroque Dance?

Baroque dance is one of the great innovations in dance in the 17th century originated at the French court under Louis XIV, and it is here that we see the first clear stylistic ancestor of classical ballet.

Our Classes

We run classes in Winchester, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then we offer basic classes to help you find the confidence you need to get to know your body.

Teachers

Barbara Segal is a performer, teacher and historian of dance from the 15th-19th centuries. She is director of Chalemie, a group specialising in early dance and music theatre, particularly the 18th century. She has performed and taught throughout Europe, the Baltic States, Russia, the USA and Australia. She has toured for the Early Music Network and the British Council, and has taught early dance to degree students at The Royal Academy of Dance in London. She organises and teaches at the Chalemie Easter School at Oxford each year; she also teaches each summer in Krakow a t their long-running Festival of Court Dance.

Barbara also trains singers in baroque gesture, most recently for the Opera Course at Associated Studios Performing Arts Academy in West London and at the Academia Sighisoara in Romania. She also gives lectures on early dance and allied topics for both academic institutions and other interested groups.

Lesley Strachan is a qualified teacher of dance & drama (Royal Academy of Dancing & Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance), chorographer and historical dancer. She ran a highly successful dance and drama school in Hampshire for decades before becoming interested in Baroque dancing. Lesley offers Baroque Dance workshops to schools, colleges, and universities.

Lesley's style aligns with the great innovations in dance in the 17th century originated at the French court under Louis XIV, and it is here that we see the first clear stylistic ancestor of classical ballet. The style of dance is commonly known to modern scholars as the French noble style or belle dance (French, literally "beautiful dance"), however it is often referred to casually as baroque dance in spite of the existence of other theatrical and social dance styles during the baroque era.

Organizer Lesley Strachan Consulting & Training

Organizer of Winchester Baroque Dancers

Lesley Strachan Consulting & Training is a Certified Jack Canfield Trainer in The Success Principles.

I give teenagers and adults clarity and confidence in what they want from life and their career.

Teenagers and adults I work with have a problem – they have no idea what they want to do with their lives and I’ve seen first hand their inability to maximise their potential in school, college, university and their jobs.

My highly successful courses give teenagers and adults the opportunity to get clear on what you want from life and create an action plan and the support system to make it happen and it’s loads of fun as well.

My name is Lesley Strachan and I’m an award winning trainer with The Jack Canfield Training Group which operates in 35 countries and have worked in the UK education sector for over 30 years.

I’m also the author of The Ultimate Guide for Parents: How to help your kids become self-confident, happy and passionate.

I believe that everyone should have access to confident life and career choices, do you? If so, why not pop over and have a look at how I support and inspire people.
