Evening dance at Broadward Hall near Ludlow

Garden Party in Chelmsford

Family events at Osterley Park

Performing at a wedding in Stratford Upon Avon

2015:

Christmas at Osterley Park : We enjoyed doing some short demonstration dances and then instructing a bracing contradanse or two in the beautifully decorated entrance hall. We loved it and, and juding by the feedback, so did our sporting audiences! You can see some taster shots included here.

Copped Hall, Epping (Museums at Night Festival): It's always such a pleasure going back to this lovingly restored Georgian mansion, and we had a magical evening dancing for Museums at Night, sampling all sorts of 18th century delights in the circuit of State Rooms.

 

2015 cont.:

 Fan Makers Worshipful Company of Fan Makers: Our evening with the lovely Fan Makers was a match made in heaven, as we fluttered and flirted our way through some specially-adapted dances incorporating the 'langauge of the fan' - extra thanks to the Master for being such a good sport!

 

 

2014:

Queen Anne's Gate Georgian Group ball: We had a complete blast at the Georgian Group's Hanoverian Tercentenary Ball, held at a very chic townhouse in Queen Anne's Gate. The guests' costumes were amazing, and we even featured in the March issue of Tatler.

 

Where might you see the Covent Garden Minuet Company?

The answer is - just about anywhere!  We’ve danced in hundreds of places over the years, from palaces, abbeys and stately homes, to slightly less glamorous venues like school gymnasia and even a tennis court! More well-known locations have included:

Of course the 18th century buildings are our favourites – not only do the dances seem to make more sense in a contemporary space, but the doorways are wide enough for our ladies’ dresses!
