GET IN EARLY TO BOOK! Once again the Jane Austen Dancers will be playing a major part in these celebrations. We’re told that the Day of Dance on Monday 16 September will be very special this year. Their performance in the evening is especially recommended.

9:30am to 12:00pm      –       As danced on TV – Beginners Dance Workshop (Day of Dance Part 1) – 90 minutes in the Assembly Rooms Bath.

Join callers from The Jane Austen Dancers for a fun session covering a selection of simpler dances used in TV productions of Austen novels. Aimed at those with little or no experience, or the more experienced dancer wanting to start our Day of Dance at a slower pace.
