Baroque Dance Rhythms for Musicians
A Masterclass by Paige Whitley-Bauguess
Welcome, NVMTA members! We are so pleased to present a special interactive program at the Woman’s Club of Arlington with Paige Whitley-Bauguess, who interprets, recreates, and performs Baroque theatre dance in venues all over the world. A recent presenter wrote what [she does] is excellent – artistic, interesting, historic – and downright exciting not to mention fun…one could not ask for more, (Steven Cooksey, Shenandoah University). She produced two dance DVDs, also available as digital downloads at www.BaroqueTrumpet.com: Introduction to Baroque Dance-Dance Types and Dance of the French Baroque Theatre featuring artistic collaborations with Thomas Baird. Paige stage directed operas for festivals and universities and gives masterclasses and workshops at universities, museums, and historical sites around the world. As dance faculty for the Twin Cities Baroque Instrumental Program, Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute, Modern Early Music Institute, East Coast Baroque Dance Workshop at Rutgers University, and Stanford Baroque Dance Workshop, she has taught countless musicians, dancers, and actors. Paige is a former member of the NY Baroque Dance Company and holds an MA in Dance History from the University of California at Riverside and a BFA in Ballet from the NC School of the Arts.

“…a dance class beyond criticism! Helpful, enjoyable, & fun because it was a non-threatening event to newcomers like me.  I learned more than I could have imagined.”–Feedback from a Student, Twin Cities Baroque Instrumental Program
