Historically Accurate Princesses Dances

Historically Accurate Princess Dances –Blog

I love princess stories, and often in my line of work as a ballroom dance teacher, I am asked to choreograph wedding routines bases on Disney princess dances. I began to wonder what each princess would have danced in the period that their stories took place.

On a bet with my daughter, I researched and produced how to historically accurate princess dance videos. If that was not enough, I filmed on location at Colorado castles. I have since taken these dancing princesses to Frontier Girls, medieval festivals, street fairs, father-daughter dances, quest club events, and weddings. I hope you enjoy this fun jog through history.
