Baroque Dance >>

The definition of Baroque, “extravagant or complex” may seem like a strange way to describe a period of music. This description comes from the high degree of added ornamentation and improvisation that was common during the Baroque era. Simple melodies were elaborately decorated, with a similar level of ornate detail that can be seen in Baroque architecture.
