Yesterday brought me to the castle in Lenzburg where I participated in a Renaissance dancing class. The whole thing was a blast, accompanied by live musicians with traditional medieval instruments we learned four different dances. The easiest only had two different steps (Branle double and Branle simple) and the most complex an English country dance called Picking up sticks had three complex figures which were sandwiched between simpler steps. The coolest thing was when at the end of the day we went out into the park and receive spontaneous applause from visitors of the castle :). Now I'm very much looking forward to the next class on June 8th.
As you may be able to imagine I was way too busy to take pictures whilst dancing. But I did take a couple of pictures of the castle itself.
