Early Historical Dance (HMEA)

Laughlin 1

Friday July 26, 2024 - 9:00 am to 10:30 am

Dance and swordfighting go hand in hand and foot in shoe! This class looks at the contemporary dances that were performed at court or on village greens by anyone and everyone. You will get smatterings of historical context as you learn how to strut, bounce, and flaunt your moves that are sure to turn heads. We will pull from dance masters Fabritio Caroso andThoinot Arbeau to recreate standards like the Pavane and the Pinagay. Not only will be fun a jaunt down history lane, but connections to modern dance and footwork that apply to swordfighting will become clear as you show off your great gams.
