- Countess Judith de Northumbria ( Rachel Lorenz)
- Main Hall on Friday at 11:15AM
This class shall cover a choreography called Chirintana, a folk-like dance that bears striking resemblance to the 17th c. dance La Trenchmore, along with two improvised folk dance forms from the 15th c, the saltarello and the piva. Instruction shall review footwork and movement drills, as well as leader and follower technique, with a dash of cultural history as told through first-hand accounts.
