Within these pages, a brilliant new and concise translation of Caroso's Il Ballarino is delivered. In this introductory volume, Margaret Roe focuses on the Cascarde dances described in arcane and florid prose by Fabrito Caroso in his renowned 1581 dance manual. Il Ballarino: Cascarde describes clearly and accurately the steps, the music, and the methodology used in translating this most seminal work of Sixteenth Century Italian Dance into clear, modern English for the modern student, re-enactor, and musician. Easy to follow charts, clear descriptions and definitions of dance steps, and sheet music scored for modern instruments are all combined, making the material available to novice and master alike.
