Hi , Does anybody know of any Roman Dance / Musical Group that operate around the North Of England ?

What Iam Trying to do is either recruit or have attached Roman Dancers /misicians to our Gladiator School based here in the N/E of England . I think it would add greatley to the arena spectical .

Any help would be great .

Thanks ,

Verus .

We don't have anything like that anywhere in north America to my knowledge, or we'd be inviting them to Roman Days.

Susanna just told me that you (i.e. the group Musica Romana) are looking for a new dancer since the old one quit. So you had a dancer in our group and considering the good research Susanna does it must have existed. I assume that dancers appeared either only in a religious context or at some feasts and were slaves and not honorable citizens. I'm sure Susanna will enlighten us on this topic ones she drops by again. :lol:

That's a great idea do include musicians and dancers to your gladiatorial shows. Big Grin

Hi there,

@ Paul:
I guess I know quiet all Greece/Roman Music and Dancing Group...but for GB
or US I have no idea, especially with dancers.
In US are as in GB musical groups that do mostly Greek Ancient Music.
But dance... :roll:

Most close would be a mixture of ballett and folkloristic meditaranian movements for dance...no belly dance!

Sorry, if something passes my mind, I will let you know. :wink:

Regards,
Susanna

@ Medusa: we have some gravestones naming famous dancers and pantomimes who were originally not comnig from slavery.
Salve Susanna,

Thanks for your answer.

I can imagine that dancers weren't respectable persons and that they might also be infamis similar to gladiators, actors, chariot racers etc. So if a free person became a dancer I guess he/she would find him/herself at the bottom of the social ladder. Or am I mistaken?

Vale,
Thanks everyone , It was just an Idea thats all , I think it would be nice to have a Misical and Dance element in our shows , maybe one day .


Thanks All ,


Paul .
