A suite of branles:
- ( Julia Hagmann)
- Lower gallery on Saturday at 1:45PM
Fun 16th c. French dances for couples in a circle. Do not worry if you do not have your own partner - we will form pairs during the dance class! Level: intermediate-beginners. We have a nice set of branles with some possible variations to show - Branle des chevaux (Horse’s bransle) - Branle des lavandiers (Washerwoman’s branle) - Branle de sappots (Clog bransle) - Branle des pois (Pease branle) - Branle Cassandra Depending on time, we might teach some of the variations we in Ad flumen caerulum know. The dance will be group-taught. At the beginning of the class, we will demonstrate the dance, then we will explain & teach it – in english and if needed parallel in German as well. In addition, we have available a video “dance-step bibliothek” (just for private use) where you can see how the steps of the dance are done. Also a cheatsheet will be available and the music too. Note to participants: we will be filming our class at KWDS. To get all this nice data, please bring a data stick with you, or give us your email addy in order to receive a dropbox link with the data.
