Advanced class

Revision: La Figlia di Guglielmino, for two
Continued work: La Figlia fi Guglielimino, for four

Our second attempt. The mezevolte still need attention, otherwise it's just a matter of making it familiar enough that it flows easily.

New Material: Belriguardo

Belriguardo Novo for two: easier to learn with figures than without. We used the Musica Subterranea music this week; might Ballare et Danzare else next time.

Dance game: improvisation and memory exercise

In a circle: first person does a step or short passage, all repeat; next person does that step and adds a new one, all repeat; etc. Our first attempt was using steps from the Canario, our second steps from Italian bassadanza.
