We were founded in 2013 by our Chairman, Rachel in order to dance like the Duke of Wellington's officers , Poldark and Jane Austen's heroes and heroines. Our dance mistress is Miss Shirley Funnell.
Lieutenant James Gardiner, who endeavoured to improve his abilities as a dancer before the Peninsular Campaign, knew how important dancing was to society during Georgian times. We dance country dances, cotillions and quadrilles from c.1700-1820.
We are first and foremost a friendly private group that welcomes dancers of all abilities and has fun! We are also serious about what we do and spend a lot of time researching dances, steps, clothing and the social context of Regency dance.
