Description
So are many other letters, but this class covers 2 cascarde starting with F, Fiamma d’Amore and Florido Giglio, from Caroso, Il Ballarino (1581). Fiamma is an adorable flirty dance that is also a great introduction to cascarde, being reasonably short and repetitive, but containing many common step sequences. It is a good warm up for Florido, which has many fun and interesting figures and works well not only as a social dance, but as a showy performance piece.
