Michel Saint Léon (1777 - 1853), father of the famous dancer and choreograph Arthur Saint Léon was himself a dancer of the Académie Royale de Musique in Paris. From 1822 to 1842 he worked as the dancing master of the princesses at the royal Court of Württemberg. To this princesses he dedicated four notebooks (1829 to 1836). In this notebooks he described exercises for the dance training, choreographies for the theatre, and social dances.
Michel Saint Léon composed many dances for his pupils, such as:
Allemande composée pour les 3 Princesses,
Mazourka composée par St Léon,
Boléros composé par St Léon,
Cracovia par St Léon,
Tirolienne composée pour S. A. R la P. Catherine,
Guarachia danse espagnole ou nouvelle Cachucha composée pour la Princesse Auguste,
Kosaque composée pour S. A .R la princesse Auguste…
In this workshop we will get to know and practice some of his choregraphies, their steps, some of them already hinting at the romantic style.
The workshop is suited for advanced amateur dancers and dance pedagogues who want to dive into this elegant dancing style that fits in between the baroque and romanticism.
