The Central Coast Bush Dance and Music Association will hold its Jane Austen Theme Night on Tuesday, July 8, at the East Gosford Progress Hall.
The night will feature a number of dances including one of the oldest known English dances Sellenger’s Round, several dances from the Playford collection published in the 17th century, including Hole in the Wall and some celebrated in the BBC Jane Austen TV series such as Grimstock, Mr. Beveridge’s Maggot and The Comical Fellow.
Music for the evening will be supplied by Regency Ryebuck, with Ms Julie Bishop calling. All dances will be taught, walked through and called as they are danced and the majority will be easy. Attendees are encouraged to dress for the occasion with Regency costume suggested for both the ladies and gentleman.
