RICHARD POWERS
Richard is a dance historian and teacher of historical and contemporary social dance, who has been teaching dance for 45 years. He leads workshops around the world and is currently a full-time instructor at Stanford University's Dance Division, Department of Theatre and Performance Studies.


He specialises in 19th century American and European social dance, dances of the Ragtime Era and Jazz Ages, and currently evolving vernacular dance forms. Richard’s website, https://www.richardpowers.com/, reflects his wide research interests in its links with his personal collection of over 2,500 historic dance manuals, the largest personal collection in the world, supplemented with a twelve thousand-title collection
of period dance music.

 

Richard’s full biography can be found at https://www.richardpowers.com/bio. It includes mention of an 1856 waltz quadrille he choreographed for a performance at Buckingham Palace for the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria. It was viewed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.
