Galop at Rocca Albornoziana

Throwback to my galop days!

Performing the Triplet Galop Quadrille at Rocca Albornoziana in Spoleto, Italy. I had a lovely evening dancing, dining, and then dancing more at this magnificent 14th century castle until the wee hours.

This quadrille is reconstructed and choreographed by Richard Powers to reflect the original galop as danced in London in the 1850s.

The Prague Vintage Dance Week started this weekend, and I sadly have to miss the event this year. Here’s to an amazing week of dancing and many wonderful balls for everyone in Prague.
