'Allemandes' or 'Almans' are one of the simplest groups of renaisance dances. They are related to pavanne's, from which they may be derived. They were danced in ?16th Century France, taught especially in the law schools, or "inns of court".

Allemandes generally start with 4 doubles, which are generally specified as hopped doubles, followed by a verse with some different movements, often combinations of singles, doubles and set and turns.
