Pastime is an enthusiastic group of people interested in authentic period dance and performance. The group was founded in 1980 by Christine Rogers and has evolved into today's company.

Pastime specialises in 15th - 17th century dance with excursions from time to time into the 18th and 19th centuries.

We would like new members to join us. We have an active and on-going programme of workshops taught by some of the foremost early dance teachers in Europe.

We meet twice a month at Chelsfield Village Hall, Chelsfield, near Orpington, Kent. UK
