The Canarie Steps

  • Ken Pierce
  • SFA 109 on Monday at 4:00PM

A look at canarie steps as described by Arbeau, Caroso, and perhaps Negri, with examples from Italian repertory. Especially, we'll look at how the step relates to the musical beat: Arbeau indicates a 'stamp' on the downbeat; the Italians don't specify. Using Arbeau's approach (translated to compound meter) in Italian dances solves some problems of timing, transition, and so on.

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