St Vitas’ Dance and Performance Weekend (CANCELLED)

Come one, come all!

On Saturday morning and afternoon, join us for a collegium on music, theatre, poetry, stories, and of course, dance. Learn, discuss, and rehearse with other performers – because on Saturday night, you’ll have a chance to strut your stuff!

On Saturday evening, we welcome all to the St Vitas Revel. In between courses of our delicious feast and dance sets at our wonderful ball, watch solo and group performers share their skills – or get up on stage yourself!

On Sunday morning, for those who aren’t yet ready to leave the world of performance and dance behind, the collegium continues, with three hours of classes and a hearty lunch to set you up for the journey home.
