Young BGA Knotentanz Workshop

given by

Elisabeth Yorck von Wartenburg

Sunday 2nd September, 11 am – 5 pm

St Gabriel’s Halls, Churchill Gardens Road, London SW1V 3AA.


The BGA’s Young Members Committee invites you to our first ever Knotentanz Workshop. Knotentanz (literally “knot dancing”) is a German form of rock and roll. Please click here for a demonstration

The workshop will be led by Elisabeth Yorck von Wartenburg. Lizzy is the best-known Knotentanz teacher in Germany. She runs regular workshops in Berlin and in other major German cities, and she has published a series of eight DVDs on different aspects of the dance. The Young BGA event will be her first workshop in the UK.  Please click here to visit Lizzy’s website.

Knotentanz is a vigorous, energetic dance-form, comparable to a sustained aerobic workout. Participants should be physically fit. If in doubt, please consult your doctor before taking part. The BGA accepts no liability for injuries or medical issues affecting participants.

Please wear comfortable, breathable clothing, and flat shoes with leather or suede soles (not trainers). Ladies should be aware that some more advanced moves involve being turned upside down. Please also bring a scarf.

The Knotentanz workshop will take place on Sunday 2 September between 11am and 5pm at St Gabriel’s Hall in Pimlico, Churchill Gardens Road, London SW1V 3AA.

The Knotentanz workshop includes a pizza lunch, an afternoon snack, and drinks throughout the day. We advise early booking to avoid disappointment.   Tickets are available at the following prices:

  • BGA Under-30 Members: £25
  • Other BGA Members: £30
  • Guests and Non-Members: £40.
