Description
Many 15th century Italian balli from the manuscripts of Cornazano, Domenico and Guglielmo feature a follow-the-leader style of movement, where partners or groups of three imitate each others steps and movements. We will practice three such dances: Belfiore, Petit Riens, and Amoroso. No partner needed, no experience needed, children are welcome.
