Choreographic Structure in Dances by Dezais

Here are links to the article (as pdf) and to a pdf of the dance structure table (Table 5). The pdf of the table is scalable; zooming in allows examination of notation details. This is possible but maybe awkward with a web browser. It should be easier to do with a pdf viewer like Adobe Reader, after downloading the file.

Here are links to pdfs of notations:

Notation samples in the pdfs and Table 5 are redrawn from photocopies of original printed copies and manuscripts. They are meant to be working copies rather than definitive editions, though I have tried to be as accurate as possible, correcting obvious errors but not supplying symbols presumed missing, nor resolving ambiguous liaison lines.
