Renaissance Dance: For Glory, Love & Fitness

Dance and swordfighting go hand in hand and foot in shoe! This class looks at the contemporary dances that were performed at court or on village greens by anyone and everyone. You will get smatterings of historical context as you learn how to strut, bounce, and flaunt your moves that are sure to turn heads. We will pull from dance masters Fabritio Caroso and Thoinot Arbeau to recreate standards like the Pavane, Galliard, and the Volta. Not only will be fun a jaunt down history lane, but connections to modern dance and footwork that applies to swordfighting will become clear as you show off your great gams.
