CLICK HERE for information and registration for our 5th Annual Baroque Dance Workshop with Philippa Waite - April 2, 2016
San Francisco Renaissance Dancers began in March 2012 with our sponsorship of a day-long Baroque Dance Workshop led by the internationally-renowned dancer, teacher and choreographer Philippa Waite of the UK's Consort de Danse Baroque (pictured right).
Ms. Jennifer Meller was selected to head up this initiative and began training dancers in the baroque and renaissance styles; Ms. Meller also provides original choreography to San Francisco Renaissance Voices.
Our dancers provide dance to our more theatrical productions and our opera series Opera Early & Ancient as well as performing a dedicated dance program during our season. San Francisco Renaissance Dancers made their professional debut at our "Concert from the Court of Kangxi" performance at the 2012 Berkeley Festival and Exhibition of Early Music performing a pavanne and menuet as part of the concert.
