In 15th Century Italian Dance a riverentia is a formal bow. A rivirentia on the left foot is performed by pushing the left foot slightly forward, pausing, then bringing the left foot back behind where it started, bending both knees silghtly and then slowly rising back into the original position. A riverentia left is the same, but with the right foot. It lasts one tempo, or the same amount of time as a doppio.
