Characters of the Dance: A Baroque Dance Performance
Renowned baroque dancer Paige Whitley-Bauguess performs characters from 17th and early 18th century dances in costume. With instrumentalists Heloise Degrugillier, recorder; Mary Findley, violin, Douglas Poplin, cello; and Patrick Merrill, harpsichord.
This lively program includes allemandes, courantes, minuets, gavottes, sarabandes, gigues and chaconnes – the principal inspiration for secular instrumental music all around Europe for several centuries.
Paige Whitley-Bauguess’ performance is presented with support from Washington DC-based Passepied Baroque Performing Arts.
