Private Events and Tutoring

Lottie would love to contribute to your event. Lottie can (for example) teach dances, call dances and perform. 

Lottie has prepared and called dances at many different events from a Fantasy Ball held in a field to a Georgian Ball at the historic York Assembly Rooms. 

She has also run private workshops for birthday parties as well as corporate events.

Research

Lottie is dedicated to researching and sharing the history of dancing, etiquette and society in order to preserve this important piece of social history for future generations. 

Lottie is sharing her research both through live talks as well as on Youtube. She aims to post a video once a month looking at the history of dance as well as dance in modern interpretations.
