The riverenza in 16th Century Italian Dance is a formal bow. Caroso describes the movements as lifting the left foot slightly, drawing it back, then bending both knees a little, then returning the left toe to the right arch, and raising the body.

The riverenza grave lasts six beats, the riverenza lunga four beats and the riverenza breve two beats.
