2nd Bad Rappenau course on 17th century dance practice
with Jørgen Schou-Pedersen
André Lorin introduced English country-dances to the French court and for their descriptions he invented his own form of notation which differs from the Beauchamp-Feuillet or Favier system. The English country dances were adapted to the French style by using a variety of French dance steps, but the first manuscript also contains original French dances of great interest.
Jørgen Schou-Pedersen from Copenhagen / Denmark, an expert on notation and the Lorin dances, will teach selected dances taken from the two manuscripts: Livre de contredance présenté au Roy c. 1685 and Livre de contredance du Roy 1688.
Intermediate level: baroque dance technique is required.
The class will start on Friday 30 September at 10.00 a.m. and ends on Monday 3 October (public holiday) at 4.30 p.m.
FEE: Euro 130,–
