Lieven Baert
Renaissance dance

Programme

William Brade 1614 ( composer )

 

Selected new dances such as Brando, Intrada, Masquerade and Ballets. There is a dance for satyrs, a Turkish dance, a mascerade for noble ladies, Scottish dances, etc. 

 

Choreography and recitations created by Lieven Baert will be taught, culminating in a costume performance at the end of the course with live orchestra.

Course participants should be aware that the classes are intended for dancers with an advanced knowledge of the late 16th century dance repertoire and that additional rehearsals are also planned in the afternoon with or without orchestra, cancelling the normal rehearsal class.
