Fêtes Galantes: a fancy dress evening in the Hall of Mirrors

 

Do you dream of reviving the refined and artistic atmosphere of the evening entertainments organized by Louis XIV, dressed in a costume similar to those of the most beautiful periods in Versailles?

Would you like to try baroque dancing, learning from the best dancers of this style? And perform with them a magnificent dance in the Hall of Mirrors? Would you like to go from the intimate music of a baroque drawing room to the religious atmosphere of the Chapelle Royale, after going through the Salon d’Hercule where dancers are celebrating the menuet?

 

These first Fêtes Galantes since the end of the monarchy will fulfill your desires!
