Upcoming Bicentennial Events: Celebrating Nathaniel Gow at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms
As soon as the Battle of Waterloo was won, the people of Scotland were eager to find out the latest Paris fashion. The Quadrille was the new dance craze and it was not long before it was brought over the water to Regency Britain.
Now you can travel back in time to the very ballroom where these dances first captivated the hearts and minds of the enlightened people of Edinburgh.
“This is is a brilliant and worthy project that is of great importance to our nation’s history of dance. The opportunity to transport Edinburgh back to 1817 and recreate this unique event should not be missed.”- Stuart Marsden
