New London Assembly at the Amherst Early Music Festival
July 9 at 4:00 pm–July 23 at 3:00 am EDT
New London Assembly is a week-long series of dance classes, lectures, workshops, and evening dancing. Although focused primarily on historical 17th- and 18th- century country dance, we will also include some of the modern dances they have inspired.
Over the years of our existence (2023 will be our 11th year – with nine in-person events), we’ve developed a culture with strong attention to detail during the daytime workshops and spirited community recreational dancing in the evenings. Some dances will be rehearsed for performance later in the week. Of special interest are the excellent Amherst Early Music Festival evening concerts and lectures.
