Join Catherine Turocy earlier in the day from 3-4:30pm at Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn on 3 Lafayette Avenue (corner of Flatbush). The Minuet class will be accompanied on flute by Elaine Camin. The basic minuet step with variations will be taught. The class will learn the first figure of a Minuet from Omphale, a five act opera by Andre Cardinal Destouches. Ms. Turocy will also speak about the changes in the minuet from the beginning to the end of the 18th century. This is a general class for all levels of experience and is of interest to dance, music, drama and art enthusiasts and practitioners. Classes are only $14 and you are not required to register in advance.
