3rd Rothenfels Dance Symposium
6–10 June 2012

“All’ungaresca – al español”
The Variety of European Dance Culture from 1420 to 1820

Whereas the last two symposia focused on the dramatic stylistic changes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, this year we will investigate the variety of European dance culture – the manifold styles and dances of the individual countries and regions. We will consider their forms and unique features as well as questions concerning the social and political environment in which they evolved and interconnections with the art styles of the time. Emphasis will also be placed on the “journeys” of these dance forms, their dissemination to other European countries and their colonies, their reception, further development and impact as “cultural
ambassadors” or even as political statements. Finally, we will trace the travel routes of dancers and dance masters, consider their careers in different countries and investigate the influence of local dance styles on their own development and their impact on the local dance culture. Our topic encompasses all forms of dance, from social dance to stage dance, folk dance to courtly dance from the Early Renaissance to the end of the Napoleonic era.
