Music and Dance
With special guest dancer/choreographer Ken Pierce, the WF EMW will explore the profound influence both Italian Renaissance and French Baroque dances had on music for the theater and chamber. Dancers will have dedicated time for the dance alone with Mr. Pierce, as well as some opportunities to collaborate with music classes throughout the week. Musicians will play dance suites, dance songs and theater music all heavily influenced by the dance of these styles. The workshop consists of group classes tailored to the playing abilities of participants, from advanced beginners to advanced players, including classes devoted to viols, recorders, voices, and mixed ensembles, as well as classes dedicated to historical dance.
*Danserye (DAN-se-ray-uh) is the title of Tielman Susato’s popular collection of dances published in Antwerp in 1551
