For the next few months we'll be concentrating on dances from the 15th century, and especially from 15th century Italy.

These are amongst the earliest surviving choreographies of European dancing. They come from a cluster of about twelve manuscripts, written in Italy during the second half of the fifteenth century and the first decades of the sixteenth century. There are slow, slinky, majestic dances; bouncy, playful dances; intricate performance-pieces; and dances that have a bit of everything.
