Description
In 1517 a German visiting Italy sent a letter home about some of the dances he witnessed there. This letter provides us an interesting view of what the dance tradition started by Master Domenico da Piacenza had evolved into in the early 16th century. Come learn the variants of Leoncello, Amoroso and Angelosa found in this letter, as well the dance Vite de Colei only found therein. Familiarity with 15th century Italian dance steps may help, but is not required.
