This important new sourcebook is the first publication in simultaneous Italian and English translation of the important 1463 dance treatise "On the Practice or Art of Dancing" by Guglielmo Ebreo--William the Jew--dancing master at the most influential courts in Renaissance Italy. It includes choreographies and music for thirty-six dances, a theory of the dance (still valid today), and Guglielmo's first-hand account of the festivities in which he took part. Sparti has provided an extensive introduction, appendices containing significant theoretical, musical, and choreographic additions from a later copy, a bibliography, biographical notes, illustrations, and a glossary.
