‘To be fond of dancing…’ – with Charlotte Cumper – 2pm (duration 1 hour)
All of Austen’s characters attend a dance at some point. But what did that entail? Did they have to memorise every dance? How did the Netherfield Ball differ from the Meryton Assembly, or the ball at the Crown Inn? Why couldn’t Catherine Morland just refuse to dance with John Thorpe? Join Charlotte Cumper of the Jane Austen Dancers to find out what it meant to be fond of dancing.
Venue: The Mission Theatre, 32 Corn Street BA1 1UF
