This year we celebrate the 350th anniversary of John Weaver’s birth. Weaver was born in Shrewsbury in Shropshire in 1673, educated in the town, returning to Shrewsbury from London to establish his own dance school, continuing as a dance master until late in life, dying in 1760 at the grand age of 87. A testament to the healthy life of a dancer!
