About this Event:

Jeremy Barlow looks at social dancing from the Middle Ages to modern times. His look at dance includes a knees-up at a country fair, children around a maypole, ballroom champions, decadent masquerade and celebrations in London on VE Day. Barlow uses 600 years of imagery of social dancing, drawing widely on materials from the Bodleian Library, to paint the major themes and looks at how artists have responded to the challenge of representing dance. He shows how jive and rock and roll finally broke the conventions of dance.

Barlow specialises in English popular and dance music from 1550 to 1750 as a performer, broadcaster, writer and lecturer.
