The Early Dance Consort is a Sydney-based teaching and performing ensemble specialising in the reconstruction of early European court dance from the Renaissance to the 18th century.
Under the direction of Fiona Garlick and John Barnard, the Consort has delighted Australian audiences with its costumed presentations, accompanied by leading early instrumental ensembles including the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble of the Golden Age, Musica da Camera, The Musicke, Pastance, the Renaissance Players and The Marais Project.
Consort performances and teaching curriculum are based on research into the surviving records for early court dance and its music. As artistic and research director for the consort, Fiona has presented lectures, masterclasses and demonstrations of early dance for arts and educational institutions around Australia, as well as choreographing for period productions of operas, plays, and ballets.
