Claudio Palestrina And The Renaissance Era
Ballets and Operas provided a gateway into a new art form that is still prominent in the world today. Court dances were the first real widely accepted forms of social dancing and, in a way, are the basis on which modern line dances are founded upon. If it were not for Renaissance court dances we would not be doing the boot scoot and boogie or the cupid shuffle at our high school prom.
