With the third volume of How to Dance Through Time, learn many aspects of Italian Renaissance dance by practicing one famous dance suite, Nido d’Amore (Nest of Love). The suite’s four parts comprise a romantic, episodic story of a couple’s courtship and reveal universal love themes. In The Majesty of Renaissance dance, Carol Téten leads dancers through the four parts of the Nido d’Amore. The suite, typically performed and viewed by Italian Aristocracy, begins with a refined introduction (The Opening), explodes with energetic jumps into a male display of bravado (The Galliard), builds to mutual ecstasy (The Saltarello), and culminates in a statement of strong individualism (The Canary).
