This weekend, Bal Moderne recreate wartime dancehalls in an event mixing live music, archive film footage and a chance to dance.
The show, held at The Hub in Edinburgh from August 15 to 17, is an immersive dance experience that invites the audience to dress up in period clothes, joining singers, ensemble musicians and participatory dance specialists Bal Moderne for a chance to experience wartime era dance culture.
Bal Moderne’s choreographies are specially designed for beginners, so however much dance experience you have, you can dress up and join in to understand the joy and escapism of dancing in turbulent times.
