How to Dance Through Time Volume III
The Majesty of Renaissance Dance is the third in the series of “How to Dance Through Time” videos. This video shows the intricacies of an Italian court dance suite, which mirrors the episodic changes of courtship. One dance, Nido D’Amore (The Nest of Love), exposes the technique for all the dance suites of the era. The refined introduction (The Opening) explodes into male virtuoso display (The Galliard); builds to mutual ecstasy (The Saltarello); and culminates in a statement of strong individualism (The Canary). Professional dancers demonstrate the dance suite with detailed step precision. To provide an authentic historical context, the dance, in its entirety, is performed with the authentic music and fashions of the era. The Renaissance era is also introduced with historical dance information, accompanied by original illustrations.
