Santucci's manuscript was pubilshed in facsimile along with an excellent introduction by Barbara Sparti. I organized an effort to transcribe the manuscript, so that a concordance could be generated, and translation would be easier. This class will showcase some of the fruits of this effort.
Santucci includes 212 rules for non-galliard steps (including tassle kicks), 12 galliard steps, 30 galliard passages, 71 galliard variations, 2 rules for galliards for women, and 10 dances.
The class notes for the class weren't ready early enough to be included in the proceedings, but you will be able to find them on the Internet at:
And here they are, as printable pdfs: part1, part2.
