 Western Social Dance
The cultural period known as the high Renaissance, c.1550-1650, produced the manuals of several important dancing masters: Thoinot Arbeau (Jehan Tabourot; born 17 March 1520 in Dijon, France, died 21 July 1595 in Langres), Fabritio Caroso (born c.1526 or1535 in Sermoneta, Italy, died after 1605), and Cesare Negri (born c.1535 in Milan, Italy, died c.1604).
All three dancing masters contributed detailed treatises on social dance that included descriptions of the most popular dances, as well as ancillary information on the appropriate music, ballroom etiquette, and révérences (bows) (See Video Clip 53); there were also rules for accessories such as the handling of swords, gloves, and fans.
Although choreographed primarily as duets, the complex dances could be set figures for up to eight performers; they were performed for a viewing audience and the figures were designed to be viewed from the front, the sides, or from above the dance floor.
