AEM ONLINE – Ballo chiamato ROSTIBOLI GIOIOSO in doi per Messer Domenico: a 15th- Century Ballo by Domenico di Piacenza with Tanja Skok
September 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT$25
When we speak of 15th-century Italian court dance today, we refer to two major forms
of dancing – Bassa Danza and Ballo. In our previous sessions we looked closely into Bassa Danza. There are three more
rhythmical patterns, which together with Bassa Danza form the whole vocabulary of the
dance of this period. They are called Piva, Saltarello, and Quarternaria. These livelier
dances as well as any composition which contained two or more of these rhythmical pat-
terns were called a ballo. In our online class we will recall the basic steps and posture of
the 15th-century Italian court dance vocabulary and learn a new dance composition,
Rostiboli Gioioso, a very good example of a typical Ballo form.
Open to: dancers and anyone interested in Renaissance dance.
