The Academy of Danse Libre Welcome to the Academy of Danse Libre, one of the nation's premier vintage dance performance groups! Danse Libre is an organization based in the San Francisco Bay Area, dedicated to the lively exhibition of vintage social dances. Danse Libre performs a variety of breathtaking pieces from the 19th and early 20th centuries in authentic period costume. Each of our dances brings to life a period in history, complete with the music, dance, dress, and mannerisms of the time. Many of our dancers have studied with dance historian Richard Powers of Stanford University and have performed in such settings as the Smithsonian Institution, Paris, Moscow, Prague, and Spoleto, Italy. Through the accurate recreation of these eras, we introduce our audience to a rich and evolving culture of dance.
