In the presence of King João III and Queen Catherine of Austria, the dances of the second half of the 16th century recall a time in which “dance is considered an uplifting and educational activity, recommended as exercise for the body and the spirit, taught from childhood and seen as a necessary requirement in the formation of ladies and courtiers”.
