Dance lessons and hot chocolate at Palazzo Dandolo
An afternoon with friends having fun learning the basic steps of group dances from the 1700s, such as minuets and cotillion,
taught by our Dance teachers on the music of a trio of classical musicians. Hot chocolate and Venetian pastry will be served
in the historic Palazzo Dandolo, located near the Harry's Bar and St. Mark square.
THE LOCATION: DANDOLO PALACE, CROZZOLA AND CORTE HALLS
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 WWII the Palace was home of one of the most important theatres of Venice.
