Present: Caterine, William, Katherina
Warmup: Rostiboli Gioioso for three
Main Session : Pavaniglia
We had Canario scheduled for this session, but did Pavaniglia instead, because that's what I had prepared.
- first mutanza for both man and woman; fourth mutanza for both man and woman
New Material (for this year, anyway)
- second mutanza
- third mutanza
- dancing first and second mutanze as one continuous unit
- dancing third and fourth mutanze as one continuous
The second mutanza came back even more quickly than the first, so we went on to the third.
Too brain-dead for Canaries after four mutanze of the Pavaniglia in one evening.
We relaxed before stretching with some of the Old Measures: Earl of Essex, Old Almain, Lorraine Almain.
Next session (Monday) we'll either focus on the Canary - either the man's second and third mutanze, or the woman's third and fourth - or we'll finish our first run through revising Pavaniglia, with the 5th mutanza and the structural verses. It will depend what I have time to study.
Note: Regular all-inclusive renaissance dance classes have finished for the year, and will re-start in February. Over summer Katherina Weyssin runs intensive classes for a few of her advanced students, where we look at more difficult material. If this appeals to you, come to regular dance classes for a year or so to build up your skills, and you might be ready to join us by next summer!
