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 shared this fun take on dance and history with two international kids clubs, Frontier Girls and Quest Club for Kids, as well as with Denver Free Fun. The princess dances have also been features at medieval festivals, street fairs, father-daughter dances, quest club events, and weddings. If you found this enjoyable or beneficial, feel free to contribute here.
