About The Class

We shall dedicate ourselves to the study of the 15th century Italian court dances, from the collections of the dance masters Domenico da Piacenza, Guglielmo Ebreo/Giovanni Amboriso and Antonio Cornazano. The class will focus the technique of movement, learning the basic dance steps and reconstruction of several original late 15th century choreographies. We shall also discuss the period dance style, gestures, and others.
