About Talitha MacKenzie
Talitha MacKenzie was introduced to Renaissance Dance by Ingrid Brainard and Baroque Dance by Wendy Hilton at the American Dance Festival, in 1973. As a student at the New England Conservatory of Music (Boston), she performed with Collegium Terpsichore, directed by acclaimed dance reconstructionist Julia Sutton.

MacKenzie currently lectures in Historical Dance & Music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (Glasgow) and recently founded the group Rossignol, members of which have performed with her at Holyrood Palace and Stirling Castle.

Since 2017, she has organised a series of Bicentennial Celebrations featuring the work of renowned Dance Band leader Nathaniel Gow & Edinburgh Dancing Master Barclay Dun, first at the Edinburgh Assembly Rooms and now at the Institut Français d’Écosse, where she teaches regular Quadrille classes (dances for four couples in a square). She is a board member of the Historical Dance Society and the Traditional Dance Forum of Scotland.
