SANTUCCI, Ercole Perugino, 16-17th c.

Santucci’s step rules not only present many important variants on “old” steps but also describe others for the first time that point to a new style, suggesting a bridge between the Italian style of Caroso and Negri and the emerging French noble style. Santucci furthermore provides an extremely clear didactic way of teaching gagliarda “cinque passi” variations, of great help and utility even today. His progression from simple to complex leads to variations that will be a challenge to the most expert dancer. Linen. $125 [item no.9208]
