Concerts of this type usually focus on a selected historical period (from the 15th to 18th century dances). A large part of the repertoire are reconstructions of original, preserved choreographies. Often, dance choreographies are also made to the indicated instrumental or vocal-instrumental pieces from the Renaissance or Baroque repertoire, to which there are no original old choreographies. It is then that the author's choreographies by Barbara Dutkiewicz are created, referring to a given style, gesture, technique and performance practice.

Concerts with a repertoire of court dances performed by the "Early Dance Faculty at the Academy of Music in Katowice" under the direction of Barbara Dutkiewicz are often performed in cooperation with outstanding musicians (instrumentalists, vocalists), or vocal and instrumental ensembles specializing in early music performance or performing a stylistically diverse repertoire. Concerts are held as part of festivals, conferences or at the invitation of various institutions and are often of a popularizing nature.
Among the more interesting projects, there were certainly concerts prepared in cooperation with Johanna Seitz and Elisabeth Seitz (in 2011 "Baroque dances and Argentine tango with harp music accompaniment" as part of the "International Harp Days" at the Academy of Music in Katowice, and in 2019 "Inauguration Concert "as part of the "IX International Harp Festival in Katowice ").
Another interesting concerts co-created with early music specialists were created in cooperation with Katarzyna Drogosz - (specializing in the pianoforte - historical piano performance practice) and Justyna Młynarczyk-Krusz (conducting the viola da gamba class at the ZPSM in Katowice and the Academy of Music in Łódź), or Krystyna Krzyżanowska-Łoboda (leading early music vocal ensemble at the Vocal and Acting Department of the Academy of Music in Katowice).
At the invitation of various organizers, the "Historical Dance Faculty" often takes part in concerts that popularize music among children and teenagers, held regularly at the Silesian Library in Katowice ("Musical Moods" series), ZPSM POSM II degree in Katowice ("Children's Musical Meetings" series ") or the series" Colors and Forms of Music "in the New Concert Hall of the Academy of Music in Katowice.

A very large part of the concerts, also on an international scale, are held at the invitation of the organizers. It was like that in the "Inaugural Concert of the IX International Harp Festival in Katowice" (May 31 - June 2, 2019) at the invitation of the festival's creator and organizer, prof. Helga Storck, who writes about this event:
 
"Since this event coincides with the end of my 15-year cooperation with the Academy of Music in Katowice, this festival will also have a quasi-farewell character. All this year's festival participants are connected with me by many years of friendship and cooperation.
