What to expect

An afternoon with friends having fun learning the basic steps of group dances from the 1700s, such as minuets and cotillion, taught by a professional teacher on the music of a classical trio. Hot chocolate and Venetian pastry will be served in the historic Palazzo Dandolo, located near the Harry's Bar and St. Mark square.

The palace of the noble Dandolo was the first place to accomodate the "Ridotto", public gaming rooms from 1638 till 1774. It used to be open during Carnival, which lasted several months, and during that time Giacomo Casanova considered the Ridotto as the stage setting and backdrop for his conquests. It is important to point out that after World War II the Palace was home of one of the most important theatres of Venice.
