Young Girls from the Middle Ages


Watch video clips of authentic dances that Gisela, Adele, and Isabelle might have danced in their fathers’ courts!

The following clips are dances that were danced in the Renaissance as well as the Middle Ages. Dances were very easy and repeated over and over again so everyone could learn them and be able to dance them at parties. Girls like Gisela, Adele, and Isabelle would have had dance lessons every day along with their other studies. To be in court, you had to be able to dance! Dances were done to meet people and make friends at parties.
