Basse to Basse (15th C Basse to Arbeau's ''Basse Dance'') (15th C vs 16th C inte

This class seeks to explore possible different step reconstructions for the Basse Dance “Jouissance vous Donnerai”, from Arbeau’s Orchesographie. By starting with the Basse Dance from the preceding era, tracing similar dances in the 15th C Italian repitoire, and then looking at the changes from 15th to 16th century Italian dance, I hope to stimulate a different interpretation of the movements of this dance than the direct Burgundian Basse to Arbeau route might produce. Note that this is a re-offering of a class taught at KWDS VI, mellowed a bit.

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