Description
Don't know what a piva, sempio, or ripresa is? Fear not! Despite the strange-sounding step names 15th century Italian dances are quite fun. Come flirt with all the interesting people and show off your fancy clothes, while learning the basics that will enable you to do many of the 15th century balli. Depending on time and number of students we will try out dances such as: Petit Riens, Amoroso, Anello, Gelosia and Rostiboli Gioioso. No partner needed, no experience needed, children are welcome with an adult.
