The company's programmes include country dances, Court dances and theatrical dances of the last half of 17th and first half of the 18th century
Many of the country dances are taken from the works of the dancing masters John Playford, Thomas Bray and Nathaniel Kynaston whose works were widely reproduced during the 17th and 18th centuries. Bath Minuet Company also recreates dances choreographed by lesser known dancing masters. Many country dances may be danced with or without the use of complex step patterns which makes them ideal for audience participation.
The formal court and theatrical dances of the baroque period included more sophisticated dance forms and rhythms.
Over three hundred formal court and theatrical dances of the baroque period have survived to the present day often with detailed choreography captured using contemporary forms of dance notation
Members of the company are happy to work with event organisers and producers to get the best possible programme for their special event or project. or production
