    I cannot believe this video was only a bit over 1 minute. I thought it went on for hours! After the first 10 seconds, I was was really hoping someone would start playing Sir Mix-A-Lot's, "I LIKE BIG BUTTS"

    As a former musician and dancer, I would like a tiny bit of real dancing in between the walk. I can think of the movements in my head from modern dance days.

      if you dance it a bit faster and you do a bit of lifting on the balls of the feet, it can be quite fun. The lifting of the heels makes it more graceful, in my opinion.
      especially in the right clothing.
      A lot of the court dances are more "noble-fied" versions of folk dances, which were of course less dignified and more like people having actually fun. ;)

      +Crystal Demon you know, if you expected a rave party, maybe you should click on a video named " Renaissance Dance Pavane"

    Was it really like this. I was expecting just a little more hop, maybe makes more sense with the right clothing?

      According to the dances I watched on RUclip tonight, the hop dance was the Galliard, but I was looking for the one where the man would bow as the lady would curtsy. I just can't find it. It would have been danced at the time of the Musketeers, I think, 1640's - ish.

      ahaha, no. This is not an accurate depiction of a pavane. There were lots of pliés, demi-pointes and turns in it. Hops were in other dances like gaillard. At any rate, it looked more like slow ballet with less turn-out and lower legwork, as ballet was developed from courtly dances.

    Isnt´s there something missing?
    I know the dance with a little 'hop' after each step to the rithm (which I also miss)
    The Pavane d'honneur is a very simple dance on it´s own anyway, but this is just walking basicly. Nice executed, but just walking.

    I imagined this dance in Renaissance dress, and it made much more sense. Think of a hall filled with people in elegant procession. Wow!

      I do at least. I'm pants at remembering titles. OüO
      I hope at some time, we'll have a search machine that works with humming/whistling in melody snippets. :)

      thanks for telling the name.
      The crux with instrumental version is that you can't really search "dumm dumm di dumm di doodle di doddle doodle dumm" on google and expect to find sheets for the piece of music. XD

    "Belle, qui tiens ma vie" is the title of the melody, published by Thoinot Arbeau.
    He also published the dance description.
    But why do you omit the lifting of the heels, when closing the feet ?
