Dance Resources

The quality and grace of dancing is essential in what we do, and we always strive for improvement alongside enjoyment.

For this we have provided a glossary of dancing terms, a guide on deportment pulling on sources from the time, and have provided a series of videos on footwork. This page will be continuously updated as more becomes available.

We have on YouTube a series of HRD masterclass videos. When available, new videos will be made available here.

A list of some of the dances we like to perform, along with their notations to familiarise yourself with.

Terms can sometimes vary from group to group and from caller to caller, to help with this you can refer to our glossary of dancing calls.

What was being said during the regency era about deportment

Some members of our group, as well as friends of HRD, spend their spare time researching the history of dance.
