About Regency ReJigged
We are a group of dancers based in the North West of England. We perform dances popular from the 17th to early 19th centuries in Regency style costume, accompanied by our musicians, the Regency Players, playing acoustic instruments appropriate to the period.
Our dances are described by Jane Austen as the “good old English country dances” and can be seen in films such as Pride and Prejudice. She herself once said “to be fond of dancing is a certain step towards falling in love!” At that time dancing was an integral part of social life – indeed accomplished dancing was linked with high achievement, grace, and harmonious thinking!
We dance at country houses, festivals, private functions, fund-raising events, stately homes, and Christmas Fairs. Further information for event organisers is available – see our Bookings page.
Regency ReJigged meet to practise on the second Sunday of each month. If you have some experience of this type of dancing or playing music and would like to perform in public, we would like to hear from you.
Get in touch if you would like to book us for your event or if you are interested in joining us.
