16c Italian Advanced Practice Notes

Monthly I am hosting an Atlantian Advance dance practice.  March was 16th Century Italian themed.  We deep dive into history, technique, choreography.  Much of it does not lend itself to an online medium, but posting the notes that I did distribute to the group.
