Mommy, Where Do Dances Come From?
Trahaearn ap Leuan
Instructor's Kingdom: Atlantia, Time Zone: EST
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Sure, your local dance master teaches you dances - but that's like saying milk comes from the grocery store. In this class we'll take an introductory look at some of the primary sources from which we draw the dances we do in the SCA. We'll see how some popular dances are described, talk about the different approaches authors took, and learn why dance reconstruction often requires some puzzle solving and experimentation. This class will be a good orientation for dancers coming to KWDS to broaden their understanding of period dance.
