A 16th-Century Dance Party
- Countess Mara Kolarova ( Meredith Courtney)
- SFA 109 on Tuesday at 4:00PM
According to the late 16th-century Italian dance manuals, a high-society dance party seems to have been a formal setting in which the guests took turns to show off for the company. Everyone spent most of their time sitting around a small dance floor, taking turns to dance one couple or one set at a time - and some participated only by watching. This session is an attempt to recreate such a dance party.
