Richard Powers has helped initiate a renaissance of interest in historical dance in Russia.  Three years ago, Richard presented his historic dance reconstructions in Moscow, and since then interest among Russian historical dancers has increased to the point where he can no longer accept all of his invitations to teach there.  In the past year Richard has taught five week-long workshops in Russia—in Kirov, Samara, Chelyabinsk and two in Moscow.  There are now over one hundred historical dance organizations in Russia, with about 6,000 members.  Russian historical dance organizations have also translated several of Richard’s papers into Russian.

We are delighted to have him teaching our students at the Santa Barbara Historical Dance Weekend and Weekend Plus this year.
