"Medieval and Early Modern Dance in the Book"

In anticipation of the 28th Annual McElroy Shakespeare Celebration, consider attending the Newberry Library's symposium on April 5th, which focuses on the theme of early modern dance and music in the book. This symposium will serve as a perfect compliment to the McElroy Celebration as the event page promises "lectures, a session with rare books, a demonstration of Baroque dance, and a performance by the Newberry Consort." For more information regarding registration for the Newberry's symposium, click on the linked photo above.
