We are DELIGHTED to hold a forth ‘Dances of Poldark’ weekend! This weekend is for dancers of all abilities to learn and enjoy some of the elegant and lively 18th Century dances featured in the BBC’s adaptation of Winston Graham’s ‘Poldark’ novels.
Led by dancing-master Stuart Marsden, choreographer of the BBC Poldark series. Further details will follow but as previous courses have sold out fast, do book your place asap to avoid disappointment.
 An absolutely fabulous weekend. Inspired teaching, humour, music that radiated energy. Thank you to Suart, the musicians and staff! 2017 Participant

Dancing and music in 18th Century England was at the centre of society and therefore essential to the plot of its novelists. Halsway Manor offers a weekend away to explore the dances and music of this ‘Georgeous’ period written about and captured on camera in BBC’s adaptation of the novels of Winston Graham’s ‘Poldark’.

“It has to be historically correct! (to the directors) Stuart Marsden

We promise not recreate the 18th Century ‘baroque stage & court dances’ but do promise to bring the exquisite 18th century country dance steps, rhythms and sounds into our ballroom for all to enjoy – in the lovely setting of Halsway Manor!

Who’s it For?

This course is for all levels of experience and will be tailored to the abilities of each dancer. Costume of the period is welcome – and encouraged – but not necessary.
