Gioliva
a bassadanza for two
Source:  AW Smith (7 mms), reconstructed by Dafydd Cyhoeddwr
Music:  Il Bel Danzare (DHDS) (2 measures of intro)
Starting position:  side by side, holding hands (by default)
Section 1:
1 Two continentie, left and right
2-4 Two sempi, left and right, and two doppi, left and right; mezavolta (so that the woman is "leading", I.e. on the left of the man)
5&6 Two riprese, left and right
Section 2:
7 Two continentie, left and right
8-10 The woman circles the man with two sempi and two doppi, starting left; the man stays still
11&12 Join hands, two riprese, left and right
Section 3:
13 One continentie, left, and pause
14-16 The man circles the woman with two sempi and two doppi, starting left; the woman stays still
17&18 Join hands, two riprese, left and right
Section 4:
19&20 Two saltarelli, left and right, then mezavolta (so that the man is leading again)
21 Ripresa, left
22&23 Volta del Gioioso (two sempi, right and left, ripresa right)
Dance repeats with indications in the instructions that the woman should lead from the start the second time.
Liberties were taken with the last section to fit the music created for this dance.  There are instructions in just two out of the seven
manuscripts to do sempi and doppi after the left ripresa, and I dropped them first (the ripresa left, volta del gioioso combination
is common elsewhere so it made sense to put them together).  I found that I needed to remove two more measures, so I took out
the riverentias that should start and end section 4.
