Synopsis

This important new sourcebook is the first publication in simultaneous Italian and English translation of the important 1463 dance treatise "On the Practice or Art of Dancing" by Guglielmo Ebreo--William the Jew--dancing master at the most influential courts in Renaissance Italy. It includes choreographies and music for thirty-six dances, a theory of the dance (still valid today), and Guglielmo's first-hand account of the festivities in which he took part. Sparti has provided an extensive introduction, appendices containing significant theoretical, musical, and choreographic additions from a later copy, a bibliography, biographical notes, illustrations, and a glossary.
