Welcome to the homepage of Historical Dance Group Plaisir Courtois.
Plaisir Courtois is based in Groningen (the Netherlands) and consists of a group of young people who practise historical dances from different periods: Renaissance, Baroque and Viennese period (19th century).
During performances Plaisir Courtois tries to reflect the atmosphere of the period concerned as accurately as possible, also through costumes and accompanying etiquette. The costumes are being home made according to original patterns and designs.
The dancing classes are every Tuesday evening in Groningen. Besides the lessons there are a lot of other activities, such as entertaining weekends, dance balls and workshops.
