'The art of dancing, demonstrated by characters and figures': French and English sources for court and theatre dance, 1700-1750

1995

Abstract

IN 1700 Raoul Auger Feuillet published in Paris Choregraphie ou Part de de'crire la dance, and revolutionized the art of dancing. His treatise made available, for the first time, a system of notation whereby dances could be recorded in symbols - allowing them to be recreated at other times and in other places by reference to a written page alone. Dance, the most ephemeral of the arts, had at last achieved a permanence equivalent to that of its sister art music.
