Arbeau wrote probably one of the most important dance treatises of the 16th century, Orchesography, first published in 1588.

Orchesography contains music and instructions for many of the branles, pavans, galliards, and other dances commonly done in the SCA. Arbeau's dances were easily accessible to the masses both in his own time and today, as opposed to the more courtly dances of the Italian dance masters.

Thoinot Arbeau was an anagram for Jehan Tabourot's real name.
