      In considering Handel's imaginative response to a range of contemporary theatrical dance styles and practices, this study demonstrates that dance was far from peripheral to the genre of opera seria. The importance of London as a leading centre for dance innovation, and the interaction between various theatrical genres regarding the use of dance, is also established.
