Circolo Pisano della Società is a cultural association

and since 2007 is affilated to National Federation Società di Danza
agrees with the aims and the Manifesto
Circolo Pisano della Società di Danza is a cultural society founded in Pisa in 1994, promotes
historical research and practice
on Nineteenth Century and Historical dances, according to the aims of the Società di Danza,
cultural association and now Federation, founded in 1991 by Fabio Mòllica, to whom the Circolo Pisano is affiliated since 1994.
Since 2007 Circolo Pisano is associated to the National Federation Società di Danza, that is formed by branches, groups
and individuals that agree with the Manifesto, the System of dance and the Educational Material.
The society aims at reconstructing a dance system belonging to the European tradition. The XIX Century dances are:
quadrilles, country dances, waltzes, polkas and mazurkas.
We aim at researching the artistic technique that in the Nineteenth Century made these dances especially important
for the dancing masters and not only mass enjoyment.
