Renaissance Dance Workshop

Wednesday, 1 April 2020

Taught by Kaspar D. Mainz (Leipzig University) and Dorothy Olsson (New York Historical Dance Company).

Dance played a prominent role in European courts of the Renaissance period, both in social and theatrical settings. Diverse dances from the fifteenth through the early seventeenth centuries will be explored in this workshop, including Bassedanse, Pavan, Branles, Alman, Measure, Galliard, and Canario. Other topics will also be considered: costume, etiquette, dance sources, and the dance music. Illustrations of the period, showing dance notation, dance sources, and costumes will be available. Participants should wear comfortable low-heeled shoes. No prior dance experience is necessary!

The RSVP list for this workshop is currently filled to capacity. RSA conference attendees may add their names to the waiting list via the Eventbrite listing page.
