Marchesana: Tempo-changing balli for beginners:
- Countess Judith de Northumbria ( Rachel Lorenz)
- Lower gallery on Friday at 1:45PM
Marchesana is a lovely little danced courtship in typical quattrocento style - flirtation, elegance, moments of tantalizing, almost socially unacceptable proximity to one's partner. While truly an intermediate-level dance, this class is tailored for beginners who want to try their "hand" at a dance with tempo changes - footwork will be covered, and we will go through footwork drills to practice both the figures in the dance as well as changing from one tempo to another.
