Analyzing and Reconstructing Historical N.E. Dance

This class is based on an article in the early 60s of Tournaments Illuminated where Baroness TSivia and Baroness Enid Aurelia of the Tin Isles discussed how to interpret static images of women dancing in order to document the historicity of dance steps from the Near Eastern world. Students will be shown images from Mughul miniatures, Greek carvings, and other extant representations of women as entertainers and analyze what these tell a dancer.

Other classes by the teacher(s) listed above are highlighted yellow below.
