La Volta and La Nizzarda

Class size - max. 5 couples, others welcome to watch and discuss. La Volte and La Nizzarda are both described in late 16th C dance sources as improvised dances for couples, involving turns and jumps in which the man lifts the woman. They are said to come from Provence, Piedmont (next to Provence) or Nice (alternately in Provence and Piedmont). They are both danced to galliard-like music.
