Rachel Lorenz, aka the Contessa, has a passion for teaching and has been fascinated by medieval and Renaissance life since she was old enough to put on an old lace tablecloth and make-pretend "the olden days". Since then, she has traveled the world studying medieval and Renaissance dance, researching dance manuals in their original language, and poring over chronicles and account books to get a deeper understanding of the nature and role of ballroom dance in the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
