Some of the best surviving sources of documentation on dancing in period come from Italy; for this reason Italian Dance is very popular amongst researchers in the Society. In Italy during the late, high middle ages and Renaissance any good courtier or gentleman was expected to know how to dance. There were schools of dancing for noblemen and as it was avidly pursued activity by ambitious young politicians of the time there was much written of it. Also, due to the audience, these dances tend to be more complex than the country dances seen farther north in Europe.
