The topic of this year's workshop is the characterization of various European nations in the French opera ballet of the beginning of the 18th century. The exploration of this issue will be based on three choreogaphies from AndrĂ© Campra's 1697 work L'Europe Galante: the Spanish and Italian scenes, and a solo of a French peasant dancing in theatrical burleque style.
