The Accademia della Danza is the renaissance dance research
group in the Barony of Carolingia. We are a small group of Scadians
doing various bits of research into dance before 1600 (OK, we do look
all the way up to about 1605, actually).
In the past, we have done reconstructions of the early Italian dance
Verceppe. We have also looked into early Burgundian Basse Dance
(where early is defined as late 15th century).
Our current projects involve mostly trying to go through all of the
dances in the Ebreo/Domenico/Cornazano/... repertoire, and
reconstructing them all.
I will eventually be trying to get everything we have done up here and
viewable, but I suspect I will be a long time catching up.
Nevertheless, here is what I have put up here so far:
Also, here is a list of useful resources:
- From our meeting of Teusday, March 12, 1996: an attempt to
Leoncello Novo, from Domenico and Cornazano. Note that this
reconstruction is entered using tables. If you can't view them, don't
bother, for the moment (though please send me mail to the effect that
you would like to. I will spend more time getting it up there in a
plain format if I have more requests). I just had a hard time
figuring out how to enter our reconstructions without something of the
- From our meetings of Thursday, October 8, 1998, Thursday, October 22,
1998, and Thursday, November 12, 1998: an attempt to reconstruct the
basse dance Daphnes. Same
note as for Leoncello regarding format. Also available is a
translation of all available
sources of the dance.
- The Rendance Bibliography is now in a
web-accessible format. Feel free to reference it all you want. There are
instructions as to how (if you don't like just looking at the code) within.
