It is sent free to members three times a year – in January, May and September. For information or to propose a submission contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and mark “FAO Sharon Butler”
Your Listings on the Early Dance Circle Website and Social Media
Members can list their details on our website. Our Groups and Classes pages offer a description, dates of meetings and contact details. Our Early Dance Calendar lists special learning days, Weekend and Summer Schools, balls, dances, displays and exhibitions etc. We also welcome items for our News section on the homepage. We use our Social Media to spread the word about Calendar events. Please send your prospective listings to email@example.com.
Access to current research and practice in early dance
The EDC Biennial Conference is key to this aspect of our work. Our Publications, Events and the EDC’s National Research Centre for Historical Dance are all key to this. In our Resources section we provide information and bibliographies on all periods of early dance and now publish a range of papers under the title Research Issues.
Advance notification of events
The three regular mailings made to members each year and email provide publicity material and booking information for numerous early dance events, including those not hosted by EDC.
Members have access to promotional codes for some public events and also pay less for events organised by the EDC, including the Early Dance Festival, which is held in the autumn each year at different venues around the UK.
