Etiquette of the Ballroom
Life at court still follows strict rules today,
which go back to Charles V, who, with the Spanish court ceremonies,
subjected not only the subjects, but also the rulers
and the entire court life to very strict rules
and precisely specified procedures.
From the very beginning,
the dancing masters played an important role.
In many of her works since the Renaissance
there are not only dances and dance steps,
but also sets of rules for life
at court and behavior at balls.
Rules of conduct are already known
to us from the Renaissance.
In the beginning there were rules
about things that are almost taken for granted today,
which are mentioned in the corresponding chapters
of the dance books, later increasingly complex processes
that determined the common interaction
and everyday life and over time filled entire books.
In order to take away the soporific,
lecture-like effect of the behavior lesson,
it is now integrated into the workshop day
and the dance lesson with the various exercises
to the reverences, taking a seat and sitting
and the breaks are loosened up with anecdotes
and examples of behavior.
So it is not a separate course
and without separate registration
for each participant of the dance courses.
In a fun and enjoyable way you will learn some
of the rules of the Renaissance.
And in joint exercises we will cultivate courtly interaction
with one another and thus develop
a gallant game for the ball.
