Burgundian Basse Danses

15th-century Burgundian bassedanses are generally underrepresented in SCA ball playlists. This is a pity, because they are elegant dances that are fairly easy to do. We'll dance through one 'regular' bassedanse, Casulle la Nouvelle, and (probably) two irregular ones, Beaulte de Castille and la Francoise Nouvelle. We'll also talk a bit about the source treatises, some alternatives in the reconstruction, and the extravagant court culture these dances came from.
