The Art of Dancing in Seventeenth-Century Spain: Juan de Esquivel Navarro and His World

Synopsis

"The only known published book on dancing that dates from the seventeenth century in Spain appeared in Seville in 1642: Juan de Esquivel Navarro's treatise titled Discursos sobre el arte del danzado. This text is a valuable source of study for the distinctive features that mark Spanish texts, culture, and history. The Art of Dancing in Seventeenth-Century Spain includes a transcription of the Spanish text, a translation of that text into English, and extensive commentary that contextualizes the dancing in light of European, particularly Spanish, dance, society, culture, and history."
