Katherine Davies, Decemember 2010


The Lady does the turning passage, and then eight seguiti battuti going forwards, and two riprese minute per fianco to the left and the right, and one seguito minuto scorrendo turning to the left and she does this another time to the right side, and the ritirata backwards, flankingly, with four passi gravi beating the feet on the ground, then she does the turning passage and the riverenza together.
