Some facts about Domenico Biography & Little Facts Domenico was born around the 1400s.
He was born in the city Piacenza, Italy. Domenico da Piacenza was also known as Domenico da Ferrara
Domenico achieved Knighthood in his life and was knight of the Golden Spur.
He also was the founder of the first Lombardic dance school.
Domenico is mostly known for his dance teachings and was a very popular teacher. Domenico died the year of 1470. He was around 70 years old. He died in the city of Ferrara, Italy. But before he died he did many significant things that changed the dance world. Domenico created dances for many parties, engagements, and weddings. He also created dances for festivals that Italian nobility attended.
Something that he is well known for is the arrangement of dances for the marriage of Tristano Sforza and Beatrie d’Est-Sforzian chief diplomat and second grande dame in Milan (1455) Domenico wrote a book called “De Arte Saltandi e Choreas Ducenii” which meant "On Dance and Creating Dance". It treatise on dance, described dance steps and motions in words and matched them up to song meters Domenico divided dances into 4 different componants.
Memoria-memory, remembering steps, order, timing, how they fit to each piece of music.
Agilitade and maniera-Agility and Manner-quickness/smoothness
Misura diterreno-controlling movement of body as you dance
Fantasmate-type of physical quickness Domenico made dancing more refined. He combined intelligence, movement, and art. This is just an introduction of his great legacy and influence in the dance world. Many dance terms were from the performances of Domenico like piva in which the dancers would circle and mirror each other in fast steps and turns.
Most of the dance moves were adapted from court dance steps. The Italian court ballet further developed in France, when Queen Catherine Medici, who married the heir to the French thrown, Henry II, brought her interest in the art Domenico had created, to France.
In the late 17th century Louis XIV founded the Academie Royale de Musique (the Paris Opera) from which emerged the first professional ballet performances. The dominance of French in ballet vocabulary reflects this part of history. Ballet soon became an independent form of art and dance and also collaborated with opera, spread through the heart of Europe to other nations.
The Royal Danish Ballet and the Russian Ballet were founded in the 1740's and began to flourish. The Russian ballet has had great importance in the country throughout history. In 1824 the Bolshoi Theatre was built in Moscow, in which performances of ballet and opera are held by the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, to this day a world famous leading school of ballet.
In 1907 the Russian ballet moved to France where the Ballet Russes were particularly influential. Soon after ballet spread all around the world, forming new famous ballet companies like London's The Royal Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet,the Australian Ballet and many others.
