Since the founding of The New York Baroque Dance Company in 1976 where our rehearsals were held in a loft above Max’s Kansas City, many dancers have been introduced to their rich dance heritage. The list of dancers below is in process. NYBDC member, Matthew Ting, will be building a webpage for our site on this subject over the year. This post is the beginning.

Deeper Roots and Flourishing, members of the NYBDC with more than a decade of independent work in the field of historical dance as choreographers, reconstructors and teachers: Patricia Beaman, Caroline Copeland, Sarah Edgar, Rachel List, Ani Udovicki.
